Heat wave is coming this week so I made new hats for the hives

Whilst everyone is complaining about the cold in the northern hemisphere it’s the opposite problem down under

With temperatures over 40c degrees it’s going to be very hot this week and I took special precautions to protect my bees from the heat

I placed a hat on each of my hives along with some reflective foil to ward of the worst of the heat and help the bees keep their hives cool.

Extra water has also been provided and I will keep visiting each day to see how they are doing.

 Looking much like a mission to mars with space age canopies to protect the bees.
