Newsletter June 2018

Dear Beekeeper

I feel I should apologise to those who contacted me wanting or needing swarms.
They simply have not appeared! Maybe I am out of the area where they are numerous, but chatting to others reveals that a swarm is a rare beast this year. Members have made purchases of nucs or are waiting in hope.
Remember if you have signed up to collect swarms then please do go when contacted, or ring me to organize someone else.
If you don’t need more bees there are folk who do!
DDBKA members have priority, so let me know asap if you have a box of bees to spare!

Do regular weekly inspections. The bees seem to be bringing in some honey now, so keep an eye on them to ensure they have room to process nectar into honey [below 20% water content].

EFB has broken out again in SE London, as well as in the Woodnesborough area. Make yourself familiar with its appearance.
Kay has been very active in our area, a fantastic free diagnostic visit if she comes to you!
