    North Yorkshire forage

    Does anyone know what the forage is like on the North Yorkshire moors? We are thinking of moving near Keld. There is no heather in the three mile radius of the house we are moving too and the fields are put down to sheep farming.

    Exactly! Text book to my way of thinking!

    No smoke s the way forward!

    Depends on your bees. There are alternatives. I am pretty sure they would rather be misted or blown away than fumigated. Controversial stuff but it works for, that's all that matters ;)

    No smoke s the way forward!

    Yes I agree veg, I reckon I lost a couple of pints of water today ! My wellies were swimming (not a pleasant thought). I just blew the bees out of the way, but had smoke to just make sure that I was covered in an emergency

    No smoke s the way forward!

    Yes I am. Obviously inspections do not help, but they do not seem to take so long to start to calm down. Just my opinion and I am sure that others will disagree. But have doing the bee thing for several years and have seen a marked difference.

    No smoke s the way forward!

    After several years of bee keeping I have decided that smoke causes more hassle than is gained.

    Two swarms in one day. No!

    I had two swarms today within an hour of each other. By the time the second had left the original colony the first was in where it had started n the original colony. The second swarm went back within an hour of swarming They originally swarmed six days ago, so was this the virgin queen mating?
