Seasonal Hints & Tips October

The 12th of this month is for me the very last day for feeding syrup,  any feed after that should be fondant although that should not be necessary until mid November.

An important point about fondant, if using bakers fondant be aware that many makes of bakers fondant contain additives to help prolong the product's storage or shelf life, and some of these additives can be harmful to the bees, also the bees have to invert this type of fondant. So ask the baker about additives.

Narrow down the hive entrances and fit mouse guards. Secure roofs for winter blasts.

Good wintering.
