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.

Now the hives are beginning to become over populated and this may well lead to swarming. The keeper tries to prevent this- when he sees queen eggs being laid( they look different- conical almost), he will try to mimic a swarm by separating out the queen and moving her with her consorts to a different hive.
