    Yes, a local artist. My wife bought on a whim. Took a few years to find its place….

    Amazing, reduced the opening about an hour ago and already things have calmed right down. Great advice, thank you.

    Inspected yesterday and all was apparently well. Does this mean they’re not necessarily the colonies own bees? Will reduce opening now and get back to you.

    Bee wars

    Sirs, I ask for your advice again! One of my hives has had a large gathering outside and around the entrance. I’ve been putting this down to the heat until yesterday. So, same thing but much more activity. On closer inspection there were bees fighting each other, there were wasps fighting bees...

    I wasn’t going to insert the inspection tray. Should I?

    Ok, I’ll be opening them up on Saturday to give them a thorough inspection and apply the Apiguard. I’ll try and take some photos but I’m not great at doing anything other than concentrating when I have the lid off (so to speak). Thank you for your observation 🖖🏼

    OK, so I went and spent a while with my bees earlier and observed. I saw several pairs at the entrance doing exactly the same as last night. However, they all seemed very healthy and either flew in prior to or flew off post fiddling around with each other. I’m going to treat on Saturday anyway...

    No idea why it’s happening. Sorry, exhausted my IT skills I’m afraid. Assuming DWV, is the best treatment Apiguard (which I have a supply of)?

    Can anyone tell me what these two are up to please? They were doing this for several minutes. In the end I left them to it…
