Weather starting to improve – temperatures around15°C but still quite wet. Plenty of forage out with Chesnut, hawthorn main sources.
Inspected both sites as I wanted to get samples for the local association health clinic. Given the state of my bees I suspect that they have Nosema as they are not expanding as they should now that Spring has arrived.
No brood in 2 of the colonies which is worrying, so will give them another week before acting further.
Results of Health Clinic show heavy nosema in 2 of the 4 hives.
