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.

The Beginners’ Beekeeping Course is filling up!!

There now only a limited number of places available for the one-day classroom based course for the beginner to beekeeping (or as a refresher) on Saturday 21st March 2020, at the Picton Centre in Haverfordwest.

These courses have been very popular over the years, giving many potential beekeepers the confidence to attend practical lessons with Pembrokeshire Beekeepers’ Association, and to keep their own bee hives!

If you want further details, or wish to book, please see the Introductory Beekeeping Course – 2020
