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.
honey bees are busy busy busy and may be swarming as populations are at their highest now.
The Keeper tries to gauge when this is likely to happen and can take steps to solve the issue by trying almost to trick the Bees into thinking it has happened by splitting the hive. They are busy harvesting the last pollen of the summer flowers
