Natural Beekeeping

It was good to read in BeeCraft about the Natural Beekeeping Convention. What a shame that to date my local branch and County seem afraid (and ignorant) of trying this approach.

Ivy

Apiguard treatments complete and every hive has food; it was so sad to close the gates on sites knowing that is it, season over! To a large extent all is in the hands of Mother Nature now until Spring (6 months away!! Ugh!). As I drove along though I did notice a most distinctive smell – Ivy in bloom!
