Toby's Top Tip
The BeeHolder, Winter 2014
If you take the crown board off to apply oxalic acid and find the cluster of bees right at the top, it usually means they are low on stores and could be given candy (you can heft the hive to double check).
Apologies for repeating last winter's top tip, but it is vital that our bees don't die out in winter for lack of attention. Ed.
