Stores and Varroa

In some areas beekeepers have reported shortages of food stores in their hives. It is advised therefore that you check your colonies have adequate stores and add supplements if required. With the weather being quite variable, fondant is the best option rather than liquid feed.

This is also a good time to check for Varroa and for those of you thinking about treating your colonies with Oxalic acid, we remind you to only use approved products in the recommended manner.

Further information about colony feeding, Varroa control and keeping good medicine records can be found on the NBU website at www.nationalbeeunit.com
