the hive is in the shade now so that shouldnt be a problem for me, no bees poking out yet anywayin now sunny Wakefield
There may lie a problem. If, with OMFs in particular, the bees get too much bright light (reflected from the snow, for instance) shining into the hive they are likely to be fooled into thinking it is OK for flying, and not return.....
only a couple of inches snow in Barnsley (good to see another beek near by!), will be checking my hives later and piling snow in front of the entrance to discourage them coming out in the sunshine!4inch of snow on the hive this morning in now sunny Wakefield
how is everyone else fairing?
Same here.From Erichalfbee....It's been sunny but cold all day.
