18th April – Overwintered Nucs

With the spell of warmer weather now upon us, we have managed to do a proper inspection on the nucs. All are building up nicely with all stages of brood showing. We want to give it a couple more weeks to give them time to increase the number of workers in the colonies and get them checked by FERA, then we can dispatch them.

9th Jul – Mated Queens ready to go

We still have Mated Queens available this week for quick dispatch. The weather has not been great for virgin Queens to get mated and many are appearing as drone layers or even failed completely. Although there is still time to get a new Queen mated and laying in your colony before the season ends, the sooner you get eggs and new younger bees appear in the hive again, the better the chance of the colony overwintering.
