All eyes on Covid 19 and then we have to look out for the Asian Hornet but all the time the seasons are moving on.
We are now moving into the swarming season when for one reason or another bees decide to seek pastures new. As a result I have now put back the page on swarm collection as well as adding it to the menu across the top of the page. If you suspect you have a swarm of honey bees then look here.
If you are a beekeeper then there are a variety of techniques you can use to try and persuade bees that they do not need to swarm I will be adding a suitable page in the near future.
However I should point out that whatever you may do if the bees are determined to swarm then swarm they will regardless of what you may do.
