Ok, Bee-nuts, If you read my posts, you will see I never said a word about what Finski is complaining about. I mentioned in 2 different threads that Bees don't heat the inside of the cavity, and he has been grousing on and on about what the weather is here. I never said anything about what he has written in any case except, EXCEPT
, the fact he has posted continuously about the weather where I am located.
I submit, bees do not intentionally heat the inside of the cavity where they live, and any heating there is actually incidental. It does give them an edge, but the temperature outside the cluster core and inside the hive can vary as much as 100° F (56° C). As Finski has written in one of his posts about something I wrote months ago:
last winter I had a small 3-frame nuc in firewood shelter. Temp was outside -20C - -30C. When I looked into the nuc. The cluster occupied the half of the space and the rest of space was full of snow which had born from respiration.
Which is located here:http://forum.beemaster.com/index.php/topic,30594.msg244824.html#msg244824
See? If what Finski is saying is that the bees Heat the inside of the hive body, then where did the snow come from and why was all this snow there?
On page 5 of this thread, he has also SHOUTED
that he doesn't use artificial heat, and in that same post he made the above statement from, he also wrote this to me:
Many say that cold does not kill bee but But when I heat the hive with 3W terratium heater
it keeps small colinies alive which otherwice will die.
I am not
listening to this dude anymore, I don't need the abuse
. He started this argument without provocation, and continues to target me for no reason. I stated what the scientists have said. My father was a Geologist, my brother has a masters in organic chemistry, and my Sister has some degree with a long name concerning biological something I can't remember. He's not using scientific method, he's using chop logic
, and shouting "I'm right, you're wrong and you had better listen to me!"
are Scandinavian in origin. It's already been posted this thread is getting long and the battle between "Flat Earth," and "Round Earth" is moot to the bees. I post this at peril of feeding the troll, and third the motion this thread be closed.
Here is one good read on the Winter cluster:http://westmtnapiary.com/winter_cluster.html
