Asian Hornet review 2019

Hello Beekeepers!

The last year has been an interesting year from the Asian Hornet perspective, only a few sightings dealt with but vigilance is still required if we are still to keep the asian Hornet at bay.

Please keep upto date with the latest sightings by keeping in touch with your branch and look HERE

Winter Feed Check

Hello Beekeepers!

Its time to check the winter feed status of your bees!

Your bees may be wide awake now and buzzing in the sunshine, this also means they will be eating through their stores of sugar. Please check on a warm sunny day and test your store levels by hefting the hive (to check its heavy). Top up the liquid feeder and prepare to switch to fondant when the temperatures plummet.

We have been donated some un-sellable sugar by Tavistock Tesco’s (Thank you Tesco’s!) and this will be handed out at branch meetings throughout the winter, so please bring a bag or two when we have some to share for your bees. – WebBee
