Message from the National Bee Unit!
In some regions of the UK beekeepers have reported excessive use of food stores due to the un-seasonally warm weather. It would be advisable that you check your colonies have adequate stores and add supplements if required. With the weather being quite variable, fondant is the best option not liquid feed.
For those of you thinking about treating your colonies with Oxalic acid, we remind you to only use approved products Api-bioxal or Oxuvar and to administer the treatment by label instruction only.
Further information about colony feeding and keeping good and accurate medicine records can be found on our website at www.nationalbeeunit.com
