December 4th: Tested Hive Heater

I tested the heating pad that I was using as a hive heater.

FAIL!

Rolled-up inside the pipe, it only raised the temperature inside an over-turned tub by 2 degrees.

Flat, outside the pipe, it only raised the temperature inside an overturned tub by 6 degrees.

So, I got an auto mechanic’s droplight and installed a 75-watt bulb.  That, inside the pipe, raised the temperature inside an over-turned tub by 13 degrees.
