A heads up

Now the active season has truly begun there are a few items you should have to hand.

 

On average you need three supers per colony, one to clear the other two into and to hold the bees while you extract the honey.

Spare frames and wax for same, not to mention nails and a tack hammer.

Enough excluders for all your colonies.

Spare floors roofs and brood boxes for doing artificial swarming.

A plan to put into action for when grubs in queen cups or sealed cells are found.

Wishing you full supers and some lovely weather.
