3360Weather related question regarding bee surveys
- May 16, 2014Good Morning Bee People.
I am wondering about storms and bee surveys. If one is not constrained by a rigid sampling calendar when would be the best day after a major storm to put out bee bowls? The first day after? The first sunny day after? The first sunny and hot (70-80 degrees) day after? or some other period afterwards?
What if the weather event is one day long vs. multiple days?
Would you see a difference in the capture of ground nesting vs stem nesting bees vs sheltered cavity nesting bees when the world is water soaked?
Does humidity levels effect foraging rates?
Are there any studies that look at bee response to weather?
