Bees & Honey

In Spring 2009 we gave a home to 7 hives of honey bees. Unfortunately, due to unavoidable circumstances, our beekeeper has had to give up and we no longer have any hives here at the moment. However, I still intend to keep you up to date with what should be happening in the hives you may see about. But dont forget that other insects, Hoverflies/moths and butterflies and even birds and small animals also act as pollinators at times

It is winter now and not many insects will brave the cold weather. Bees huddle around the queen to help her survive and some will lose their lives in the process. On warm days workers will clean out the dead ones to keep the hive hygienic
