September is here and the bees are getting ready for winter. It is our job to get help them and I have written a page of tasks which can be done this month to increase the chances of your bees surviving the winter but also of being in a good position to make a rapid start on Honey production once the new season arrives.
After a long day at a public event a bee keeper was clearly tired of explaining what bees do and how important they are. When asked why they made wax he informed the wide eyed child that “inside the hive it was dark and the bees used the wax to make candles so they could find their honey stores”.
