Hello everybody,

I'm a hobby beek from Lincolnshire in the UK. I have 3 hives which made it through the winter and have given me some honey and 5 swarms hived which are going to have a job to store enough to make it through the coming winter.
We have been officially declared to be in a drought, and the water supply companies have imposed a ban on the use of hosepipes, but it has been the wettest drought in history. The girls have been working hard between torrential storms!

I've been lurking for a while in the forums but signed up because I have a lot of questions that I want to ask
