The Temperature has been too high over the Christmas period, so only half the colonies have been treated with the OA Sublimox unit. Although I am still cleaning equipment and repairing damaged gear brought in from the apiaries. Iâ€™ve hit the bee sales for new equipment and spares for next season. My own bred queens from the 2017 Buckfast Marken ,alongside a New stain of Marken breeder queen so the season will be busy.
I have a new piece of equipment, a Lincu incubator to go alongside the Brisea unit, which now gives me a capacity for 60 queen cells in the incubator for my own use. We have a few new apiaries to set up soon plus the School project at Willow Dene bee apiary, which will be all new for 2019
All the best for 2019
