House Keeping

A lovely mild day and so good to see the bees busy house keeping: out on cleansing flights, removing dead and debris, even a few returning with pollen!

Rock n Roll Bees are HEAD-BANGERS!

Apparantly bees bang heads with each other; well at least scout bees from different colonies use this process to decide who can swarm to a particular location (if they both investigate the same place).


Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
I am looking forward to an enjoyable bee season,full of fresh ideas. There is so much to beekeeping and with it a real importance,so I hope to get it right and do the best I can for these amazing creatures.

Thinking Ahead

Thoughts and ideas for 2012: Polystyrene hives, Zest hive, Geopathic Stress Lines, Arnia (recognising changes in hive frequencies/vibrations).
