Standard time means NOT daylight savings time.  If you are on Daylight savings time adjust by adding one hour.

:imsorry:
To me standard time is local time
   
This is from  wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standard_time
<Standard time is the result of synchronizing clocks in different geographical locations within a time zone to the same time rather than using the local meridian as in local mean time or solar time. The time so set has come to be defined in terms of offsets from Universal Time. (See more about standard time.)

Where daylight saving time is used, the term standard time typically refers to the time without daylight saving time.>

    In the  book "Bee Sex Essntials" it say Queen mating flight are between 1 PM and 4PM  standard time  and the time  changing seasonally accrding to photoperiod,weather,climate,subspecies and flight activity the prior day.

They need to use UTC like us amateur radio operators!  :-D
