  • Make sure your bee suit is clean and ready to wear
  • Carry out your FIRST SPRING INSPECTION near the end of this month (weather permitting!).
    Look for:

– 3+ frames of brood and 5+ frames of bees
– eggs or open brood (this indicates a queen-right hive)
– food stores (minimum 5kgs)
– signs of disease

  • Check varroa mite fall every 2 weeks – less than 4 varroa per day is ok
  • Remove mouse guards
  • Start records
