Good afternoon.
Surprise surprise, there IS a sun in the sky, and it has been a wonderful day here in North West Norfolk.
Therefore I decided to mow the lawns.
As our bees are in the front garden on the lawn I use an electric mower with a very quiet motor, in order not to upset them.
Today however, I noticed that each time I approached the hive a pack of bloodthirsty, lawn mower avenging bees would attack the machine. They didn't come anywhere near me!
The mower is Orange, does anyone think this would have an effect? The mower causes little vibration if any.
Thoughts please.
