Now here is an interesting question for DerekM.No, quite the opposite - it would be pretty unwise, that has been proven by quite a few people over the years, it has never been the case that a roaring gale through the hive is beneficial to the bees, that was just some untested fantastical theory (using fabricated data) pushed forward by Wedmore in the 1940's
Edmund Basil Wedmore was both MIEE and F.InstP, indeed he avoided military service in the first world war on the gounds that working for the British Thompson Houston Coporation was a reserved occupation. So he should have known better.
Derek, where did he go wrong?
When he published The Ventilation of Beehives in 1947 he had turned 71. Should we blame early onset dementia?
