During the season a variety of procedures will be carried out at the apiary.
These will include:
Due to unknowns: the weather and the bees themselves, we will start in April with Queen marking and hive records and also testing for varroa levels.
There will be opportunity for people to experience manipulating bees and learn from others at the social period after the hives have been attended.
Bee-suits can be supplied contact The Apiary Manager, Geraldine Lenert
