MAY is on it’s WAY

May is ‘all go’ time for bees and beekeepers! 
For the bees; lots of flowers to visit, nectar to collect and honey to make and – shh! ….. we just might SWARM! 

Beekeepers – are you ready for the swarming season?   And have you extracted your oilseed rape honey?

At this time of year when the leaves are gone from the trees you might spot a nest and, although it will be empty during the winter, it will show the area where the overwintering hornet queens are likely to be!
