  1. Greetings to fellow beekeepers

    My first attempt at a Blog.
    The weather still cold and miserable, a week ago in the late afternoon there was one or two bees having a quick look outside, but nothing scince. Lets hope we get the barbeque summer promised last year
  2. Bee keeping in Germany

    Poor weather over here +10C!
    After a nice long cold (down to -20C) it is worryingly warm.
    The bees are out 'feeding the flowers' which is good.
    But there is condesation under the lids of the hives.
    The bees are in brood - bad news indeed.

    Local logic goes along the lines of if the bees are breeding early (and with a small brood) the varroa are too.
    The older bees will die earlier and the product from a small brood will have very high varroa ...

  3. First Blog Entry

    I have absolutely no experience in this blog situation, so if this is in the wrong place Gavin please feel free to give me a yellow card.
    I am assuming that my blog is just for some news and info about what I am doing in beekeeping just now, so I thought I would share some info about Nina and the Neurons.
    If you are unaware of who this is then you need to sit with your children or as in my case grandchildren and watch the C Beebies programme on television.

  4. Trog's Blog

    Just playing to see how this works.

    Today it was calm, sunny and only a light breeze. The temperature in the shade was 4 degrees (c) and my two wee nucs were flying and bringing back pollen.

    Snowdrops have just opened, as have hellebores. Hazel catkins are full of loose pollen which comes out in clouds when you shake a branch, and doubtless gorse is in flower somewhere nearby. It always is.
