New Bees

Last week we had the pleasure of visiting Apicentris at the Ferme Moore. Although a wet and cold morning, Pablo, Daniel and other members managed to get all the bee packages inserted into their hives. These tubes of bees had just been delivered from Chile the night before. Purchasing packages of bees from other countries is not new and we were lucky enough to obtain a tube of bees surplus to their needs. With high losses in our area this Spring, finding new bee stock has been difficult. Especially if we want then early. We were lucky as our tube held plenty of bees so we should be able to get up and running quickly. All we need now is some warm weather…

Many thanks to Apicentris for making these bees available to us.
