As a human I want a house with a roof, indoor plumbing, bug free, and make my wife happy. I don't want to drive too far to work, and it has to be well-suited for offspring.
What are the criteria that define a "good spot" for a new location for honey bees. I'm sure it involves water, shade, access to nectar, and defensibility, but I don't know any of the details.
Has anyone ever made measures of this? Beekeepers? Apiologists? What are the things bees think are important, and what values of those do they think are "best"?
