    I am wondering about the amount of heat roofs generate and how that would affect the bees.

      Heat from the rooftops. That’s a good question. I haven’t looked into it, but perhaps the wind, even when it’s not strong, would be enough to dissipate most of the heat. I would probably set up the hives on light coloured stands or pallets, something that doesn’t absorb sunlight.

      But really, I don’t know.

    Hey Phil,

    Seen the first pollen for the year today. That real pale yellow. My guess it is alder and the bees were bringing in a tonne of it.

    Woot woot

    Thye colony that was almost dead and I moved to the mini nuc has flurished. She is laying eggs well and she is filling out. All the bees need is space to lay more eggs.

    hopefully the year will come along.
