    Question about shutting bees in

    I've been doing work in my garden and I have shut my bees in twice now and they have been fine. I let them out again at the very earliest opportunity. Yours Roy

    Newby question - How much time does beekeeping require?

    In my seven hives I had last year, I never went through any of their brood boxes. This leaves them alone as you will damage the brood by inspection. The only problem you may have is swarming, if you are sure they are not going to swarm, leave them alone. Yours Roy

    Sharing of apiaries - good or not good?

    steve1958 and I share an apiary...........and it works brilliantly :) And this why - 1. It is visited twice a week so external problems can be picked up quicker. 2. If one of us is sick the other can do the inspections. 3. We can have holidays during the bee season as the other will look...
