good article and not too scaremongering either.

The more of us that become bee-keepers has got to help IMHO

True very true - Only trouble being is that someone has to teach them and its causing big problems in our association - We have 63 people waiting to come on next years course - Which is fantastic in one way and scary as hell in another!

It's August and my girls have been stuck in for days again with the rotten wind and rain----as soon as it improves I'm going to check the new colonies are o.k for stores. Some of the losses are definitely down to lack of food.

At a local museum yesterday there was a sign limiting (locally produced) honey to two pots per customer. Looks like it's going to be in short supply this autumn.
