The bees have been out on a cleansing flight recently, foraging for available pollen from ivy and snowdrops on rare sunny days. At other times, they still huddle together in the hive to keep warm and preserve energy. Let's hope for a better summer this year and some honey should be available in late spring. When rain gets on their wings, they cannot fly home and can therefore starve or freeze to death. Bees need to keep a certain amount of their honey to get them through the winter months. If you see a honey bee resting on the ground (looks like a very small wasp!) you could help it by giving it a saucer of water with stones in for it to stand on to get a drink without getting wet - you could also add sugar/honey to feed it and help the whole of humanity because without the bees, we cannot survive!
PLEASE NEVER USE PESTICIDES!! Warm water with salt poured on weeds is all that is needed - remember, a weed is just a flower in the wrong place! Bees LOVE dandelions!
We hope to have some honey available in late Spring 2024.
Please bring your empty jars back for recycling - thank you.
