Having recently mentioned queens, our July edition has an interesting and detailed article from ‘Down Under’ on this topic describing how our Australian reporter approaches this. 

If you received a gift through us for Father’s Day we hope you are enjoying it - whether it was a subscription or book.  

If it was a subscription, we would love to hear what you think of your first edition. It helps us to improve our magazine and provide what you are looking for. Simply reply to this email with your comments or send them direct to editor@bee-craft.com. We love to hear from our longstanding subscribers too, so don't be shy!

If it was a book, we would be delighted if you could write a review. This is easy to do directly through your personal login if you are a subscriber. It doesn’t need to be long; just something that will help potential purchasers get a feel for it. Only subscribers who have purchased books are eligible to write reviews so your help in doing this will be much appreciated. 

Hard as it is to believe, already the days are starting to get shorter and hopefully there will be more forage for our bees now that the ‘June gap’ has passed.  This will vary depending on where you are in the UK.  

Are you now thinking about preparing your colonies for a trip to the heather? Need some tips?  Check back to our June edition for Graham’s article or if you want to get more heavily involved in the production of heather honey, our publication ‘Heather Honey- A Comprehensive Guide’ is highly recommended.
