Survival of bees at high temperatures depends on the duration of exposure and relative humidity. At the higher temperatures bees survive short periods only and do best at low relative humidities because they can cool themselves by evaporation more. At somewhat lower temperatures bees can survive longer at high relative humidities because desiccation is the limiting factor.
