The continued wet weather is of growing concern; colonies are beginning to run short of food. The low temperatures and lack of sunshine means little nectar yield from plants for the bees to forage. Whats more the weather is preventing proper colony inspections and the bees seem more defensive (not surprising given they have little food and are being disturbed in less than good conditions).
