All a bit buzzy 🐝Merging two colonies

Beekeeping is one of those hobbies that you never stop learning! Over the next few months the bees will be in full swing. They are already making the most of the beautiful weather by collecting lots of pollen and early Spring nectar. Occasionally however they need a bit of a helping hand and this is where we can help.

We‘ve put together a couple of videos of merging two hives together. this was because the queen bee from one hive hadnt survived the winter and If we hadn’t done this the whole colony would have unfortunately died. Here Tony explains what we are doing. Me, I’m filming and as you will see being bombarded by some very angry girls!

Thankfully now we have one very happy colony to take us into Spring.
