Yes - have an business in Crete as well, seeing as Cyprus is going pear-shaped fast. If climate change continues like this I could end up back in the UK.
Best regards

Hi Mike

Tortuous Ian Davisons queens?

Most of mine come from the breeders Roger sells me. It's rather a shame you can't be that selective:cheers2:

Norton I noticed in this picture(click here) you say the almonds are just finishing and the ground flora is blooming,when does your season start if the picture was taken in February?

Hello,
I suppose you could say it starts with the first rains in October when fresh nectar and pollen becomes available. We are talking here about southern Greece. Of course the colonies don't really start buiding in strength till mid February and swarming preparations are present in colonies from about 25th March till end of April. The Cecropian bees of southern Greece have a highly developed swarming instinct.
Best regards
Norton.
