Report – Poly Hives and Long Hives

Our last club meeting in Kenn was well attended – Stephen & Heather Brain even made sure that the sun was shining all afternoon.  Stephen’s talk on plastic hives was an eye-opener.  He went through all the plusses, all the various sizes and uses and he didn’t pull any punches when it came to the downsides.  As you can see from the photos those who had brought their suits were able to look into and handle the hives.  Apart from Reg of course, but I don’t think any bee would dare to sting him!
We followed this with the usual bee talk, tea & cakes, plant exchanges and then a raffle for the Brain’s new puppy, Peppa.  (Only joking!) – David Welham
