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!
