We have come through our winter and in full blown spring here, actually winter was so mild that the hives have been active the whole of winter. Even though spring starts 1 Sept, the bees have been very active since early August and have been returning with Pollen. All the hives are packed with comb and the it’s going great. At this stage, I’m reluctant to harvest any honey, does anyone know if this makes any difference to the overall happiness of the bees? I have a beekeeper friend and he says the bees become restless and agressive If you don’t harvest.
