Is it time for mouse guards?

Is it time for mouse guards?

04/11/2018  It might just be a little too late!!

We went round the apiary sites collecting in the swarm boxes and fitting mouse guards to the front of the hives to help to protect the bees from little furry creatures who might be looking for somewhere warm to nest.

What we found in this empty nuc box made us realise that we will have to do this a bit earlier next year.  Not only was there one mouse but a whole family of five - and they weren't keen to leave!  We safely released them into the neighbouring field to go and find new accommodation - our good deed for the day.  (They were so cute!!)
