Reminder – Starvation Risk

Just to remind beekeepers everywhere to check their bees for stores (especially nucs), as we are coming into a high risk time for starvation, as the queen gets into gear and the remaining winter stores are used up. So give your hives a heft and if needed, give them some fondant or candy (not liquid feed!).

If you require fondant, it is available for PBKA members only at £1.50/kg pack, or £18 a box of 12), from the PBKA Chairman, Jeremy Percy. You can contact him on 07799 698568.
