Today we inspected a few of our hives


Today we inspected a few of our hives – they have a lot of stores still so after checking that the queen was in the brood box we added a queen excluder and removed some of the frames full of stores made from syrup to help them through the winter and replaced with drawn wax empty frames to enable the bees to find a space for the pollen and hopefully nectar they are bringing in in this lovely warm weather, but look out for colder wetter weather next week, it is not full spring yet!
