Hi All, We have just harvested 2 frames from 2 hives, the first for this season.
Both frames were obviously fully capped, but we have only collected 1.4kg each frame compared to 3.3kg each frame last season.
Does anyone have any thoughts on the reason.
- We have had a dry winter here but the bees had access to water right throughout.
- We did not feed the bees over winter, but left them plenty of stores in the Flow Frames as well as in the brood.
