The Beyer bees are hot

08/07/2018

The hot and dry summer is not only afflicting agriculture, bees are not having it easy either. They are producing less honey and need this themselves to survive. However, it is also too hot for the varroa mite. So our bees are in rude health. No treatments are required due to illnesses and our bio-certification continues to progress. We were able to harvest 2 kg of honey and are looking forward to the tasting.

Did you know that bees can regulate the temperature in their hive with precision? Worker bees spread out in front of the entrance to the nest and use their wings to fan the warm air out of the hive. In the process, up to 7,200 wing flaps are achieved per minute.
