Giving my Beehaus a home
Yesterday morning the husband, the Beehaus and myself drove over to Sarah’s house in Leamington Spa. They big day had arrived – we were giving the Beehaus a home.
Although Sarah’s garden is big, you can’t just plonk a beehive anywhere. There are certain criteria you need to follow such as ensuring the bees are protected from the wind and full sun, they have a clear flight path when exiting the hive and that there is a water source nearby such as a pond. My friend and mentor Nikki (all amateur beekeepers are assigned a mentor – well, in the W & L branch anyway) came along to help me choose the perfect spot. I think we managed it. Lets hope the bees agree when I show them their new home tomorrow morning.
