To survive the winter, a cluster of bees must keep itself warm. While it does this efficiently, it makes no attempt to heat the entire space within the hive. The warmest place within a hive is in the center of the cluster. The temperature of the cluster decreases as you move toward the outside.   The optimal core temperature of a honey bee cluster in a winter hive is 95°F (35ºC). 81°F (27°C) is the average temperature observed on the inside of a cluster, while 48°F (9°C) is the average temperature of the exterior shell of the cluster.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition). In beekeeping, a winter cluster is a well-defined cluster of honey bees that forms inside a beehive when the air temperature dips below 10 to 14 °C (50 to 57 F). Honey bees are one of but a few kinds of insects that survive the winter as a colony. As the outside air temperature decreases the winter cluster becomes tighter and more compact.

There are some fascinating aspects to the winter cluster. Bees will be dispersed around the hive while the temperature is around or above 60 degrees; When the temperature drops below that level, worker bees start forming a cluster around the queen; The center of the cluster, where the queen resides, will be maintained at a temperature of around.   To survive the winter, a cluster of bees must keep itself warm. While it does this efficiently, it makes no attempt to heat the entire space within the hive. The warmest place within a hive is in the center of the cluster. The temperature of the cluster decreases as you move toward the outside. From late winter to early autumn, bees keep the temperature in the hive's nursery between about 91°F and 97°F to ensure proper development of the young. They rarely allow the temperature to vary.
