No honey crop

preparing for hive check Oct 16

Okay, we were late in checking the hives. I admit that. But we have no honey crop. And other beekeepers we have spoken to say the same. This is very disappointing and has set back some of our plans. We also found that one of our hives has been destroyed by wasps.

We have in storage, from previous years, the squeezed honeycomb. We need to get our wax extractor into action. Another job for the autumn.
