Bee Craft Timely Reminder – 8th November 2017

So how’s the weather with you after the recent blows?
Windy?  Check again the stability of your hives and ensure they are secure

Wet? Make sure your apiary is high enough so this isn’t how you need to get there to check all is well.  Not easy or safe wearing a beesuit!

Still fairly warm? Bees still flying? Check what’s around by way of food. If they’re still flying then they could still be consuming lots of food from their stores, so keep an eye on the weight of your hives to ensure sufficient stores to tide your colonies through the winter ahead.
