Hi All - Just had an email via Beebase to say that within 5km of me in Ottery St Mary there has been an outbreak of EFB, and to check my hives carefully...guess what I'll be doing tomorrow if it is warm enough...

Ditto - most of today has been 13-14 and finally reached 15 at about 4.30, the next few days are meant to get warmer though
