    Tonight, 11oC (~52oF), 9 p.m. and midnight. Girls are out.

    What is the inside hive temperature?
    I think they are too HOT to goto sleep.
    Sleepless in California!

    Have no idea, but they have a screened bottom. Since the hive is horizontal (not frames), screened area is huge. I agree with Matthew Davey that it looks like patrolling... hot, cool girls ... I do not know!
