In 2015 we lost two colonies through over inspecting. Today's meeting will look at any nucs we are bringing on and the queen in the Demaree.
As always the meeting will be cancelled if the weather is unsuitable for opening beehives. Beginners please bring wellies and Marigolds.
The jobs today are:
The branch apiary is located on the Stourbridge to Kidderminster road at Iverley.
From Stourbridge take the A451 signposted Kidderminster. Leave the 40 mph limit and travel up hill past the Crown Public House. As you descend from the crest of the hill turn right into the field by the large oak tree.
From Kidderminster take A451 signposted Stourbridge, cross over the staggered junction of the Caunsall to Churchill road and in 500 yards turn left into the field just after the large mound of earth on your left, that's by the large oak tree.
Park in the lay-by on the A451 just uphill from the apiary or on the verge by the large oak tree. PLEASE BE CAREFUL OF PASSING TRAFFIC!
