17 December 2012

I did a quick visual check on the bees today, it was very warm on the terrace and 1 or 2 bees were out on a, errr, 'comfort break!' There were very few dead bees outside which is amazing considering and the mouse guard was clear. I checked the varroa count and it was a very impressive 2 over the week so we do not need to treat them with oxalic acid, which is great news. Ill check them for stores in January however they should be fine as they had plenty of honey and I put some fondant on but better safe than sorry
