Please note that the hot and dry conditions are likely to continue until at least the beginning of next week.
Therefore, please be careful if you are working your hives, especially with your smokers, and ensure that you do not drop any sparks or embers as there will be a heightened fire risk due to the dry vegetation! We suggest you carry water etc. for damping down.
Also, ensure you have water for yourself to keep well hydrated and watch you don’t catch the sun or get overheated! Wear a hat to keep the sun off your head and loose clothing to let the air circulate, especially under a beesuit!
And don’t forget to check that your bees have access to water, they need it too!🐝
