Beekeeping Year – February

Here’s what you should be doing this month:-

  • Read and study
  • Watch the bees for pollen intake
  • Plants (Crocus, Salix, Viburnum, Blackthorn….)
  • Consider stimulating by feeding
  • Watch for dead hives (varroosis)
  • Tidy up the apiary whilst the bees are not flying much
  • Clean (& repaint) varroa monitoring boards
