Survival of bees in Kuwait
I am a Beekeeper in Kuwait with around 450 hives, engaged in beekeeping for over 15 years.
In Kuwait the maximum temperatures in summer months touch 50 degrees celsius and the temperature remains in the average range of 30 degrees to 48 degrees celsius for over 4 months.
Most of my bees die during the tough summer months and I have to import fresh bee batches.
Though there are limited forage areas for the bees, I have been unable to find a solution to protect bees during the high summer temperatures.
I would request you to share from your experience some solution to protect bees during the high summer temperatures.
