    Wasp Traps What Bait?

    Spot the Bee

    i agree, they also love cotoneaster early in spring, right now they only seem to go to the balsam, they have not touched my borage at all.

    bees with white stripes

    its himalayan balsam,grows near streams and rivers. its not a native plant and the envoiromentalists hate it as it out competes the natrual plants, but the bees go mad for it.

    a lot depends on the grapes, how strong you want the wine to be, how long you want to ferment it for, how much you make. like beekeeping there is not one way, whatever works for you.good luck

    for 20 gallons i add 2-3 kilos of sugar, depends how dry it is to start, it also boosts the alcohol content.
