The swarming season is upon us early this year. Come along to the apiary at Nowton Park on Sunday 8th May at 1400.
We will have a discussion first to explain the process of swarming, what we do to try to deter the bees from swarming and the equipment needed. We will also explore the technique of artificially swarming the bees (and so satisfying that natural urge they have) whilst maintaining good honey production. A practical demonstration will follow, a chance for questions and then refreshments and a general chat aiming to finish by 1530.
The meeting is aimed at those who have already have bees and that intend to start this season. As it follows the beginners practical session all are welcome to stay on
