Another hive check
This afternoon we headed down to our Whickham apiary to do some hive checks and where appropriate, prepare hives for the spring. We had 4 hives in the apiary but we found one was queenless. This was merged with another. The two remaining hives were strong so we added queen excluders and supers to them so that they can start to build up a honey crop.
