The bees have been living at A Space 2 Grow for a couple of days now and one of the things they require is feeding. When a colony is at full strength bees are normally self sufficient and can forage enough pollen and nectar to feed them all. However, when you purchase colonies in the way we have they come quite small and so need a bit of help to get the colony properly established.
It was good to see a few bees going in and out of the hive and it suggests they are settling in nicely to their new home. Though still being small colonies the hive entrances are not that busy.
The first inspection will be early next week when we will know for sure how they are finding things.
