The Wonder of Bees

     A great BBC series that follows Martha Kearney's beekeeping adventures in England.  To view more Bee Documentaries check out the Bee Video page of our website. 
     Our bees have had a great start to the year with a few colonies 4 deeps full.  We are entering a high pollen period with the Black Locust trees, raspberries and blackberries coming into bloom and hopefully good foraging weather.  This period will last for about a month followed by lesser but diverse and consistent foraging for about 3 months until October.  A split I did a few days ago appeared to have active robbers so I made and applied a robber screen which has done the job.  I hope all of your bees are as happy and healthy as ours.
