I saw my first 2011 queen today and got a real good feeling and there was normal sealed brood which is always a relief to me. My next dilemma is whether to mark now or next Spring, after the problems I had last year.
Tonight I went to a demonstration of Instrumental Insemination; I don’t know my stance on this and can see arguements on both sides. One thing I can say is a big “Thank You” to Michael Collier – what a really nice guy and a wealth of bee keeping knowledge and acumen he has. I remember going to Michaels last Open Day which still remains one of the best bee keeping things I have done.
