Honey Shop in full speed.

I've been very aware of CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder) in the US, but reports from my beekeeping friends here around the country this year tells another story. Many have had wonderful harvests with their bees going from strength to strength.

This year I have been called out to remove swarms of honeybees like that of ten years ago. This tells me that bees are healthy, growing and multiplying to such a size that swarming is triggered. I made divides in the spring and they are strong now and gathering honey. Its a sign that we are doing something right here in England. 

And well done to all you hobbyist beekeepers out there. I applaud your hard work, devotion to your craft and helping to safeguard the survival of our honeybees.
