Mr S and his brother keep bees, so we always have a good supply of delicious local honey. They are keeping them busy at the moment locating the queens and putting measures in place to prevent them swarming.
I know very little about the process but I do enjoy the fruits of their labours. Mr S keeps trying to stick a hive in our garden but I am resisting. Much as I admire bees for pollinating my plants and producing honey, I don’t appreciate being dive bombed by them when I’m digging my veg patch or having to deal with a swarm!
