Can you tell what you are looking at above?
Come to the talk on Thursday 17th February at 19:30 at the Colliton Club in Dorchester we have a talk by Kevin Pope- Seasonal bee Inspector - on what he found last year. This is an event not to be missed if you want to know what we need to look for this year.
And if you are not sure what the photos are then you should definitely be at the talk.
And the wind? Thursday is the quiet before the storm - quite literally. If your hives are not strapped down then now is the time to do it. We are expecting winds of up to 70mph - the worst for many years.
If your hive is strapped together and blows over then on Saturday all you have to do is lift it back onto its stand and apologise to the bees!
And finally search on Google for "BeeInfo" - all one word. There I am building up a site of much that I know about bees. The URL is https://dorsetbka.com/BeeInfo/
