It does sound like your bees changed their mind and went back home. They will probably swarm again soon. It might bee that your queen did not loose enough weight to fly or just did not leave. Is she clipped?

Congratulations.

Do you have a flow in the heat? They could be shutting down in a dearth. I don't have heat like that so I wouldn't know but they can shut down in a dearth... Or perhaps it is hot enough that they can't cool and they shut down for that reason. I really don't know but it's a theory.

G'day.
Locally we get these extremes of heat for weeks on end, colonies slow down
 mainly from days spent after 10AM cooling the hive body.
Water over coarse sand close by helps with maintaining some production.

Cheers.

does worldwide use the same server? eltalia put up a link on bee source that I used to access the forum. if I do a general search & & use the link on the search page I still cannot access beemaster or worldwide forums.

G'day.
Where your "general search" is a g**gle.com return then those linked to pages are going to
remain broken until the spiders catch up Robo's work - "but I am still working with the new hosting
company to tweak some things".

Best way out of it for now is to refresh the bookmark and clear all browsing data, if your
software allows the freedom.

Cheers.

GENERAL BEEKEEPING - MAIN POSTING FORUM. / will extreme heat shut down queens?
« Last post by rober on July 22, 2017, 09:21:05 pm »
I have several hives that have little to no brood & I have found queens in the hives. it's been over 100* here for the last week & hit 108* today. if I can't check hives by 7:00 a.m. they're not getting checked. it's too d*#m hot to be in a bee suit.
