Alice, Beekeeper from Tregothnan and her lovely Dad CJ Coleman came along to check that our gorgeous Fowey Hall Bees were happy and content in their new home!
They added an extra super to each hive so that the bees have room to expand reducing congestion in the hive and reducing the chance of them swarming and making room for honey production.
In the close up picture of the bees they are fanning pheromones about to let the young bees know that it is safe to return to the hive.
Alice and CJ are very happy with the bees, they are behaving exactly as they should be. However, there won’t be any honey from our new guests until they are fully established next year. We will keep you posted!
