Hot Hives

Hi Folks,

Was just flicking through some photos and found a pic of 3 of my hives that I had on a neighbour?s place. The date was January 1st, 2020. They got a little warm when the big fire went through.

Was lucky enough to save the hives at home. Saw a neighbour?s hive go up like a Roman Candle. The little critters didn?t have a chance.

Acebird:
Maybe they absconded before the fire reach them.  The problem is where could they have gone?

BeeMaster2:
Anywhere,  they carry everything they need to make a new home. They can easily fly 5 miles to find a new site. Most forest Fire?s don?t extend that far in every direction. The biggest problem is how far can the queen fly while still in full egg production. She needs to bee able to fly far enough to bee able to find a safe landing spot while the scouts decide which direction to go..
