I didn’t think that the wasps were such a pest this year: but the first hive I checked this morning was riddled with them and the poor bees had perished – yet last week all was okay (albeit I had noted to reduce the entrance as this was a weak colony and I had over looked masking across some of their entrance slot). A bad start!
At my next site , my newest, I was almost intoxicated by the setting, its’ situation and view really captivates me and I have to stop and take it all in. Even doing this though my bee keeping was over all too quick, their is little to do this time of year.
