An interesting article in The Apiarist, regarding queen clipping.
The PBKA has been very successful in recent years with its ever increasing membership, the development of the Pembrokeshire Beekeeping Centre and the continuing popularity of its training sessions at the Association apiaries. We also have other developments in the pipeline for 2022, including our new training apiary at Scolton, which we will be advising you on further in due course.
It all takes a lot of work to keep the Association running however and we are currently looking for additional volunteers to help!
Roles which currently need filling include:
- Membership Secretary
- Swarm Coordinators
- Undertaking routine hive inspections, maintenance, etc. at the Association apiaries
If you are interested in becoming a PBKA volunteer, please email the Chair, Paul Eades, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our bee inspector has issued a warning about colony starvation so please ensure that you urgently check your hives for stores and act appropriately.
Also note, that with the weather warming up over the weekend, there is a high risk of swarming, so get in there asap and check your colonies before they fly away!!
