28/12/2018 It is almost 2019 and the beekeeping cycle comes round again! We have taken delivery of our first batch of mating nucs and are looking forward to the warmer weather returning to be able to restart our Queen rearing programme.
This year we have invested in some 3 frame Lyson nuc boxes. We have previously used apideas but have found that they very quickly become overcrowded and unless closely monitored you can find that the bees abscond as a result. The last thing you want is to rear a beautiful queen, have her go on a successful mating flight - and then lose her!
Frames and foundation waxes arrive soon .... then let frame building commence again.Back to all blog articles
