Hives in the Heat of Day and Night

When bees cover the front of a hive or any other surface as below, 
it is called " bearding" .
 They do this to get out of a hot hive and into the cool  night air.










When they spray for Mosquitos in our area, 
I cover the hives to protect any bees 
that are bearding outside the hives 
from accidently being sprayed.
