Recently, we had an eight frame observation hive built. Currently we have it outside, but we're planning on moving it in side pretty soon. My main question is do we need to cover it with a tarp or something? I've been noticing quite a few dead bees at the bottom and I was wondering if the glass was making it too hot or something?

Thanks for any help!

Outside? In the sun? In Texas? You might want to keep it from getting overheated. Just think about what your car is like when you leave the windows up in the summer time.

if you move it inside and the entrance is in a different place you will lose all your worker bees and will have lots of homeless bees milling around all over the place.
