Welcome to Bee 1st.
A lot of beekeepers have continued to see stores low in their hives and some have already losy colonies due to starvation. Each hive should have a minimum of 20kg (40lb) of honey stored away in the broad box, if the hives are light there is the potential for you colony to stave over winter. We suggest that you heft your hives on a regular basis to check the weight of stores.
We stock Fondabee which can be fed now to ensure there are enough stores over winter. It’s now to cold to be feeding liquids/syrup solution.
Winter is the ideal time to treat with an oxalic acid based treatment. We stock and use Api-Bioxal which we use with a Varrox sublimation wand.
