It's been raining pretty heavily here for a few days; the temperature is about 25 deg C, but the humidity is very high, presently about 90%. It's not raining at present, but it only stopped about 30 minutes ago. I've got two hives in my backyard, one has two boxes, the other three. I've just had a look at them (it's about 1.30AM here) and both have several thousand bees on the front of the hive (they're several layers deep.)
Should I expect them to swarm soon? Are they just keeping the hive cool, or relatively dry? I can't open them up while it's wet, but the rain is expected to last for a few more days. Should I be worried?
Thanks in advance.
