I wanted to start a thread that was about night time observations. These are external observations. NEVER NEVER open a bee hive @ night unless you really know what you are doing.
I recently got a higher resolution thermal camera that I can take videos with.
I am real curious about how the bees have different temperatures. The hottest bees are only a few, and they are moving around, patrolling bees. Strangely, the clump of bees at the entrance is cooler than other parts of the hive.
Does anyone have any understanding of these temperature differences?
