Re: sure is hot in here
As temperatures rise bees shift their foraging to water. The returning water foragers will deposit droplets throughout the hive and the circulating air will evaporate it. Sometime, eons ago, bees figured out that evaporating water will reduce the ambient temperature. In essence the bees create an airconditioning system. Have you ever seen an evaporative cooling system for a greenhouse or chicken house? The bees were a couple of gazillion years ahead of mankind on this.
