The smoker is absolutely necessary and a good one should last a lifetime—particularly if made of copper. Two types of smoker are widely available: the straight-nose, or Bingham, smoker and the bentnose smoker. The latter is the more efficient and will stay alight more readily than the former. A reasonably large smoker is a good investment. It is easier in use and does not need refuelling as often. Smokers laid on their sides often go out, and it is a good idea to screw a large hook, such as a coat hook, on the back of the bellows, so that the smoker can then be hooked on to the side of the hive where it is in easy reach as one is working.
The two do overlap and it is necessary to be aware of both. In dealing briefly with development of individuals we have already dealt with several facets of colony behaviour, such as defence and foraging. Now I would like to expand what has been written in the two previous chapters in the light of colony organization. The honeybee is thought to have originated in tropical areas and to have spread to other parts of the world by adaptation. The seasonal cycle varies in different parts of the world from the almost continuous round of flora in sub-tropical areas through two periods of fluctuation from dearth to plenty in the tropics to a definite annual peak and decline in the temperate zones.
The bees in the centre eat honey and metabolize it by activity, thus producing heat, which can be lost by conduction, convection, and radiation. Losses by conduction will be insignificant, for both bees and wax are fairly poor conductors. Losses due to convection and radiation have been shown to be about equal and to be proportional to the surface area of the cluster. The loss of heat from the cluster can be controlled therefore by its expansion and contraction, and by coupling this with increased or decreased honey consumption the clustered colony has control of its temperature over a considerable range of ambient temperatures.
