Out Apiary Clean-Up

 

The last beekeepers to occupy this site left some time ago - allowing nature to take back hold on our new apiary!
Nature has now been fended off a little, making the whole area a little more tidy !

Thank you to everyone who helped - a job well done, I'm sure you'll all agree !   Bring on the bees!!!

It is important to 'flame' the insides of any hive you inherit, or buy second-hand - this kills off and diseases and pests that may be present.
     
 
     
A view from the bench...
It looks to be the perfect place to observe our bees from... just as soon as they are moved in !
