    Ive taken the plunge

    Yeah that's the one , probably should have looked at that but tbh enjoyed meeting the people and having a look around .I only have about 80 national shallow, 10 medium lang and 12 dadant frames to extract so its job enough. Should last a lifetime too I'm guessing.

    Varroa treatment when and best product

    Not promoting it but I use apiguard in August, 2 doses back to back once the supers are off followed by a oxalic acid vapour end December/ early January.Seems to do the trick.

    I'd just leave a scion out throughout the swarm season and do your best to prevent swarming .least they know it's there then if they do go for it

    Ventilated Bee Suit.

    +1 on the old castle farm sentinel . The only places I’ve been nailed is on the wrists in the gap between the mesh suit and leather gloves. The stingers can puncture the gauntlets !

    Is it safe to split the hive in August?

    Wasps are beginning to rob around me now quite heavy,the entrance reduces are on , not so much of an issue with the dark hive at present but the buckfast hive is like a battle ground.I killed 12 wasps in the house alone yest !
