you need to bee able to provide for your Native Bees the following:
partly shaded location from 10.30 - 11am onward for the hive, to avoid the heat of the day and strong western sun
early morning sun , our hives are in the sun all day in winter, sun is vital for bee health as they wont be active till around 17 - 18 degrees ambient temperature, its very important you provide them with early morning sun to increase the hive temperature so they remain active in the cooler months.
