It's Swarming Season again!

Once again, it's that time of year when our bees might decide to up roots and go in search of a new home.  If you think you have a swarm, providing they are honeybees, we will remove them and give them a safe home.

The Bee Free Zone

The Bee Free Zone is our education and Visitor Centre where children and adults alike can learn about the bees.  They can also watch in safety as we make our weekly inspections of the colonies in the apiary.

The Diary of a Beekeeper

We want you to feel as though you are a beekeeper with us, and so we're starting this Blog Diary to keep you informed about what we're up to and what we're doing.

For each diary entry, you're welcome to add any of your comments or perhaps you'd just like to ask a question.  Either way - we'd love for you to interact with us!

Our Bees

As part of our commitment to keep healthy bees, during our regular inspections of a colony, we will check for any signs of disease.

We will treat our bees with recommended veterinary medication at various times of the year to control known pests and diseases.

 

We try at all times to keep bees that are gentle and calm and will take appropriate action if any of our colonies display aggressive characteristics.

But these ladies just might be aggressive!

They are just some of the many Guard bees protecting the entrance to a hive!
