It's been the best Spring weather I can remember in the past thirty years; the flowers have been just wonderful!

Consequently, the colonies of bees have grown quickly and will soon start swarming so swarm control is vital, especially if the weather gets cold and the colonies feel crowded with all the foraging bees stuck at home.  If a swarm needs collecting just go onto Worcestershire Beekeepers' website at www.wbka.uk.

Bee hives are a series of vertical boxes with the brood at the bottom and the honey above, the honey boxes are called "supers" and they are filling-up nicely.  If the weather gets cold and the bees can't get out to forage then they will eat the lot.  I hope it stays warm...

Hagley & Stourbridge Beekeepers' Association

Hagley & Stourbridge Beekeepers' Association promote and support beekeepers in the area though training courses and mentoring.  We run a training apiary at Iverley.

Hagley & Stourbridge Beekeepers is part of Worcestershire Beekeepers' Association which in turn is part of the British Beekeepers' Association.

No one knows when we started because all our records were lost in 1998, we believe it was sometime in the 19th century.

Our aim is to buy a fragment of land in the area with vehicle access and nearby parking for up to ten cars, where we can establish a permanent teaching apiary with storage for our equipment.
