Storm Diana has arrived on schedule in the West Country this morning, so before the very wet and very windy weather gets to you see to anything outside that could be affected! Especially your hives.

Once done you can spend time on Christmas preparations and finding out where the festivities will be happening in your area.

Not a fan of Christmas? Make sure you have plenty of beekeeping books to lose yourself in until next year.

Do you want to increase your number of colonies; which method of swarm control are you going to use; will you rear your own queens; with global warming is now the time to make a solar wax extractor?  So many questions.

Start 2019 having done your research, with decisions made and your plans in place.   And just hope your bees have read the same books!
