Bee Craft Timely Reminder – 7th February 2018

Looking at the weather forecast, if you have to travel and as soon as it is safe to do so, pay a visit to your apiary to ensure your hives are intact and the entrances are clear of snow and/or debris, the mouse guards and predator protection are intact, and finally heft to check the level of stores. Make a note of what part of the hive is heaviest.

A critical time is approaching with stores potentially running low and the weather/lack of forage meaning it’s up to you to provide food if necessary.
