June is here!

Beekeepers have LOTS to do! 

 Extra supers to add to the hives, frames to make up and foundation to add, regular colony inspections to spot signs of imminent swarming, swarms to collect and hive, colony splits or artificial swarms to consider, varroa mite drop to monitor – the list goes on and on!   

 

N.B. Remember the June Gap – does your area suffer from a lack of flowers in June?  If so, then keep checking your colony’s stores – especially if you have taken off a LOT of Spring honey!
