    Abelo lyson extractor

    Yes, this is normal for that model extractor and also their smaller models. I have one of these machines and it concerned me at first. The motor is located underneath the unit and drives the drive shaft which, in turn, passes through a tube in base of the unit. The tube is approx 2" to 3" above...

    Wasps still attacking

    When are these little beggers going to die off! 7 degrees and sunny here this lunch time. Noticed wasps attacking a hive close to my workshop. About 15 to 20 of them trying to get into the hive, the bees were putting up a good defence considering they should have been in a cluster. I reduced the...

    strange coloured honey this year?

    Oh! don't get me going on that one. I located the source. Some of the skips were quite new and 'bee proof' but there was a number of old skips with badly fitting lids and doors. These were inundated with bees and wasps. Contacted NBU and local enviromental health informing them of possible...

    Don't need to go to France for that! My hives were full of multi coloured honey this year, red, green, yellow, every damn colour! My entire honey crop (as it was) from 12 hives was ruined. There is a haulage company about half a mile away from my apiary who are transporting waste chocolate...
