Heatwave

At last we have some good weather that is enabling bees to get out and forage.  However, please make sure that they have a supply of water nearby.

On the downside, bees are swarming so keep watching for signs of this happening. We inspected one hive and found 8 capped queen cells – it would seem that the old queen had already gone with only a small number of bees as the hive was still very full.  These capped queen cells enable us to create 2 new hives.
