I arived at one site this morning to do my weekly inspections and was greeted by 3 nucleus boxes strewn and knocked over: fortunately 2 were empty, but the third has a colony in it. All around the other hives were bricks and stones and then by the vandalised hives I saw sticks. The bees, not happy, were wet from the rain; I only hope they showed their discontent to whoever did this!
