    Nucs wanted

    Hi all I'm trying to find two Nucs, one for my brother in law in Dartford Kent and another for a friend in Truro Cornwall. I was hoping to supply them myself but have had a few problems this year with my bees. If anyone can help that would be great :sos: Thanks JD

    Patchy brood advice - MAQ or Q problem?

    Hi Had a very similar problem in three hives after using Maq's, no new brood, no sign of eggs, and a lot of dead bees, queen's looked healthy, so I let them get on with it, hives are now strong. (treated in March) The rest of my hives (4) were all ok after treatment I will never use Maq's ever...
