Re: Survival of bees in Kuwait
Just wondering if the foragers can stand 50F and not parish? Assume they have ample water. If they can't survive, suspect it tough going.
What temp is ground at say 8 ft deep? Temp in Alberta at 8 ft deep is about 39.5F year round. Could you house hives in an insulated building with bee entrances only to outside and use circulated water and rads with fans to cool interior of building. Water would be circulated through a long underground piping that cools the water.
Works in Alberta for summer cooling and with a heat pump one can extract heat from the water for winter home heating. Just a thought as I know little about Kuwait.
