In some parts of the UK the weather this year has been unpredictable. Colonies have needed to use their stores during the summer so may not have collected enough to last through the winter, even if you have taken no honey from the hive. You need to know how to assess the stores, and have a plan for how you will feed if you need to.

Read Adam Leitch’s article Preparing for October on page 21 of the September issue of Bee Craft. It contains some useful information and tips.
