Well I’m pretty pleased with how my queen thinks winter is coming along and has started to get laying again. She has over a month off so no brood capped NO varroa also.
She started to lay two days ago with about 20 eggs. I will check in a week or so to see if all is well.
Feeding your bees has become the norm this year and we have added pollen patties food to keep them fit so when the spring comes it’s all go. We have all tasks completed over the lock down cleaning boxes, frames rewired so waiting for spring. Even cleaned my bee suits.
If you want to get more gear don’t leave it to the last minute thinking that the retailer will have plenty of stock. Hopefully I will see you soon at the club grounds when we get back to normal.
