We were rained of on Tuesday so we didn’t have a look at the bees ( I had a look yesterday and they are all expanding in the brood box nicely).
We heard the stories of the group’s bees – they have been there over a week now. All seemed to be ging well.
We had a look at The Natioanl Bee Units website https://secure.fera.defra.gov.uk/beebase/index.cfm which is full of usueful information and advisory leaflets – https://secure.fera.defra.gov.uk/beebase/index.cfm?pageid=167
Also home to the varroa calculator which lets you know the level of infestation and wether treatment is needed. https://secure.fera.defra.gov.uk/beebase/public/BeeDiseases/varroaCalculator.cfm
