The recent high winds and almost continual rain has caused a certain amount of anxiety, has the wind blown the rooves off the hives and because of being confined, have the bees finished eating their candy and need more?
Some colonies eat all their 2.5kg blocks of candy immediately, some don’t touch it.  The ones who don’t touch it tend to be more “relaxed” about life, the others can be really aggressive, something to be watched, and avoided as the season continues.
I’ll explain “the season” as it is here in Hagley (it differs as you move south or north).
Bees only have three seasons, the second week in January is Flowering, that extends to the third week in July when it’s Fruiting until the first week in October then it’s Dormant.

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.
