Welcome to the first blog in our news section of our website.
We will keep you up to date with what has been happening at our weekly apiary meetings (starting in April, weather dependant) and at our other meetings and events. Also, any items of interest will appear here too with up to date tips that may help you and your bees.
Our first apiary meeting of the year was on Saturday 12th January the agenda for the morning was to discuss Varroa treatments with an option to use Oxalic acid by vaporizing, cleaning and sterilizing some donated equipment, checking our stock of frames/foundation and the disposable gloves and most importantly to check the bee’s stores.
There was a very good turnout and enjoyed a good chat of course while doing the chores, Dennis came along and talked us through his latest project, which should appear in the next Buzz, he also brought along some of Theresa’s lovely cake!
I have included a photo with some eggs in the cells, just to keep your eyes accustomed to seeing eggs, I thought twice about putting a photo with a queen!
