So with the Coronavirus causing problems, Royal Mail have said they can no longer guarantee a ‘Next Day Before 1pm’ delivery and so the decision was made to not have the Nuc of bees posted.
After all their welfare is important!
So I decided that I would bait the hive and I had some comb sent to me for this purpose last year. However when I opened it today there was larvae everywhere and so that was that.
So the odds of me having a hive of bees this year is slowly dwindling but I will still give it a go, after all, I have nothing to lose!
So now it is just a case of waiting and hoping!
