BLUNDERS OF BEE KEEPERS.

BLUNDERS OF BEE KEEPERS. Some people declare that bees can't gtand heat, and so place the hives under the shade of trees. This is a mistake-a rery great mistake, says Pearson's Wethly. Hives stand out in the full blaze of sun in semi-tropical countries, and certainly neither bees nor honey are any the worse. Bees look after the temperature of their lives themselves. When the hive gets too warm some of the workers come to the sntranee and begin fanning with their sving:, blowing' in fresh air. If the hives ire placed in the centre of an open space in a garden it is sometimes found that there is a regular line of bees flying just about the height of a person's face, and in this case stings may result. The nui- sance is easily avoided if the hives are placed near to a hedge. Bees always fly as straight as they can to and from the Sowers from which they are gathering honey. We have the well-known ex- pression a "bee-line" for indicating the shortest possible cut between two points. So the baes, on leaving the hive, will rise at once above the hedge, and so fly at a height at which they are not likely to trouble anybody. ⦠1
