JULY 2017

 

LEARN BEEKEEPING

            

             Those who took Williams course over the winter and now have hives in place and all the related equipment please contact Kevin if you require a swarm

 

Main Flow

 

             As weekly hive inspections become less essential for swarm preparations it is time to load up the supers so the bees can store their excesses for our pleasure.
