Reason for losing our bees


Well, we are happy to have been told that it was not through bad management that the bees died.

It seems that the colony was not large enough to keep warm enough and that extra cold weather we experienced was the cause. There was no sign of any disease which was a relief.I am not sure when our hive will be occupied again.

Oh what a shame they are very worried about bees at the moment aren't they, they are not sure if there is a virus that's getting to them.What will you do now, I have five boxes which Mason bees take up residence in each year and they are facinating to watch, each year I but another box and fresh tubes, it really is that easy. I hope you get another family of bees soon, great creatures aren't they?

that is such a shame but at least the hive etc doesnt have disease in it. so you may get a new colony moving in soon.

I ought have bees myself as I love Honey. The problem is, too many plates spinning at the moment, and I wouldn't want to fail them. Hope you get a bigger family of bees next time.

Well here's the answer to the question I just put on the other blog.
I hope you will try to keep more bees now that you know you did nothing wrong.
