Re: [TopHive] bees are clustering on the bottom of my TBH
- It's quite warm out this time of year. Mid 81F/27C during the day and
57F/14C at night. they've been doing this for a while so i don't think
they're going to swarm. seems to be plenty of room in the hive still. a few
bars left on each side. perhaps its just better temperature regulation?
