yea yea ---but how do they move bees if the sun always shines??? RDY-B
I asked my colleagues this question .
how Bees behave in the north when it is light 24 hours a day?Do they rest or is it full speed all the time and if so, how does it affect the Bees and harvest.?
"The bees in the north are controlled by the temperature more than the light, if it gets a little cool in the evening they go home.
But it may be that they draw virtually around the clock when it's warm nights, and it is wonderful.
What's more in the north there is a much more diverse flora than in the south, so there are always plants from early spring to late autumn."
"they fly as long as it's hot and there's something in it .... During the raspberries flow they fly 22 of 24 hours a really impressive sight ..."
"Which should mean that sugars are higher in plants in the north compared to the south of Sweden."
It depends how you read the text of Edward.
I phoned to a beekeeper on Arctic Circle and he said that bee may fly 24 hours in a day but it is extremely rare.
Last summer was so cold that hives did not get Honey at all. They stopped brooding.
My brother kept hives 20 years in Sweden Piteå. The North is not a paradise to bees.
Here is some or our beekeepers on map. The most south point is 60 degree latitude and the north most is on Polar Circle 66 degree. http://www.hunajantuottajat.fi/
Vegetation is not more diverge in North. It is sure. I do not blame guys behind the back of God , if even strawberries there produce honey.
One psychiatrist told in TV that in Lapplan North folks are such that they overstate their sayings, and if someone gets a 2 meter long pike (fish) , let it be and don't go to measure it.
"fly 22 of 24 hours a really impressive sight
" I wonder why, but life in north is not easy.
