Last Saturdays apiary meeting 13th April, incorporating with the Introduction to beekeeping course was changed to be inside as it was a cold 8c with an easterly wind, well yesterday’s meeting 20th was quite different with temperatures in the 20c’s. Plenty of the course beginners could make it so they all had their first experience with “live” bees. The apiary teams new suits stand out well, which was the brief but with a slightly thicker material did get warm. Luckily we had no queen cells to show the beginners after a short briefing first, just in case we did see queen cells. We found that we are short of super frames made up so that will be a priority. Julian supplied the photos.
