It used to be tradition to give your bees a Christmas treat. Will you?

If so, do you have the fondant organised? Do you have equipment ready to go in the form of an eke, inner hive cover with feeding hole, insulation to go around the container holding the fondant to reduce the cold empty space that this creates above the frames. 

Unsure of what an eke is? Confused by other beekeeping terminology? Our comprehensive Glossary will help you out. 

Now the leaves have mostly fallen from the trees, don’t forget when you are out for your winter walks to have a look for Asian hornet nests high up. These still need to be reported through the usual channels which are listed on the ‘Asian hornet update’ link on the home page of our website
