    Is it true that it is so windy in Wyoming that the bees have evolved with larger wings on one side so they can fly in a straight line back to their hive?

    Yes, but if the wind stops they can't get home because they just go in circles.

    Hardly!!! It actually doesn't get very windy during the summer months; it's mostly during the winter, so it really isn't a problem most of the time.

    I visited the wind river Indian reservation for a week in the early 1980's, June as I recall, and it was so windy I couldn't hear my wife yelling at me the whole time we were there!

    I had a brother in law we used to visit in Cheyenne in the winter and you could add -20 temps to that wind in January. - I'm assuming you either have the toughest bees or the best beekeepers around.

    There are exceptions, and sometimes frequently. Yeah we just had -25 F a couple weeks ago. The bees pretty much gotta be localized, and yes, there's a few gimmicks to keeping them alive, but hey, we're doing it, and it's not as complicated as you might think.
