Thanks for the advice guys.
I did wonder about the temperature, which is why I asked.
I'll hold off on the weed killer and strim them down instead. They really are a major problem.
I'm aware of nettles being the food source for the caterpillar of the Small Tortoiseshell butterfly (and others)...
Hi again everyone,
Here is my first question.
As mentioned in my intro thread, I'm new to bee keeping and have only had my hives for a couple of weeks.
I live on an old farm and my bees are located in the front garden.
Over the top of the house and in another courtyard we have a nettle...
I just finished a ten week bee keeping course and now have two hives to look after. Kind of scary for a newbie!!!
Anyway, I guess I'll have a ton of questions to ask so you'll be hearing from me.
