It has been a long time coming but the sun is out and the mercury has risen giving our bees the opportunity to get out into the fresh work those muscles.
We have been told about colonies not coming through the winter so I was worried about our hives but so far the ones in Battersea are all well and the hive in Wallington is amazingly strong. 2012 10 frames of bees. Don’t understand how that can be but there it was. Kanken I gave them a new brood with new foundation and some drawn out comb. 90 femme 2017 Hopefully the queen will move up into the clean parts. Backpack Then I can isolate her with a queen excluder for 3 weeks when all the brood has hatched.
