Weather: has been a mini heatwave with temperatures between 24°C – 28°C. No rain and forecast is for more of the same.
Forage: Pyracantha, geranium and cow parsley – elderflower is finishing. Bees very active and bringing in lots of pollen.
Decided to raise some queens using a Cloake board – started in 17th June.
17th – added 5th frame to Green as it was surplus to the queen rearing activity
Need to make up some more supers.
Looks like Indigo may be looking to produce a supersedure queen.
