Early spring temperatures are often cold and wet.  Not great for bees.  But there are periods of sun and sunny days that allow mason bees to emerge, mate, fly and start nesting.  However on sunny days, the wind chill might just drop the temperature enough so that it is too cold for mason bees to be active.  Having a large protective shelter for bee homes is a plus.  Inside the yurt it is like a little greenhouse, with excess heat escaping through the roof.
I will be noting the temperature over the next couple of weeks to show how the yurt moderates the temperature.
Four thermometers with identical readings used for
checking temperatures inside and outside the yurt.
I have choosen 4 thermometers that read the correct and the same temperature.  The next thing to do is the hang them inside and outside the yurt for comparing temperatures.
