Shade for the bees

The locusts and rhododendron and irises are beginning to bloom, as are daisies, irises, and numerous wildflowers.

The apiariella and apiariulus helped me haul an 8' by 4' OSB back to the hives. The evening sun here is quite hot today, and I thought the bees could do with a bit of shade. They really have no defense in the evening, and I was worried that their wax might melt.

A photograph is below. The Saint Valentine's hive is on the left, the Saint Benedict's is on the right.
