Come along to Nowton Park Apiary this Sunday where we will be looking at the Nucs we set up two weeks ago to see how our queen cells have faired. Do we have newly mated queens to clip and mark?
We will go on to introduce a Queen to an existing colony. You might want to do this if your colony temper is poor, your queen is failing or you want to move to a low swarming high productivity strain of bees. This is possibly the hardest beekeeping task you will carry out as a beekeeper so lets see how we can make it easier and increase our chances of success.
Remember we always finish with cake and a chat or catch up
