Are you sure you are a real beekeeper Jim??? LOL

I knew a farmers wife who said to me:

"I ken ma place, it's the bees first, then the fairm, then the dugs then me."

The bees were being rouped out, and a month later he was buying bees in again....LOL A real beeman. ;)

bit desperate that Admin, a big saucepan and syrup making might have been a better plan.

Agreed it would of,In a state of blind panic I grabbed a couple of 5kg sugar bags I had in the back of the truck and started pouring,needs must and all that.

Big lesson learned that bees just transfered from Nucs can starve in a wet August with no supers on a national.

The lesson here is that bees can starve full stop and of course the big ones starve fastest.

Baring disease, (note please hivemaker) I have had and dealt with I think every other disaster apart from flooding.
