Poor Weather Checks

posted 20 Apr 2012, 15:38 by Pete Steadman

Message from Regional Bee Inspector Dave Bonner:

With the on-going poor weather, there is a real risk of bee colonies starving. Please check for stores in the colony and if in any doubt feed your bees. You should feed with either a fondant or a thin syrup.

Further information on feeding bees can be found in Best Practice Guideline No. 7, on the Advisory Leaflets page of BeeBase (click here).

Kind regards,

National Bee Unit.
