I’m Heather from Mandurah in Western Australia.
I purchased a nuc hive about 4 weeks ago and having
my first in depth inspection (with a bee buddy) this afternoon.
My bees are going gangbusters.
My only problem is a pesky bee eater who has taken to visiting occasionally we are making sure he doesn’t feel welcome!!
Hi Heather, welcome to the forum.
I have some magpies that eat the odd few, however not enough to make a difference. I don’t think that bees are their favorite food, unlike bee eaters.
Welcome, given how populous our hives are I don’t think our birds in WA can impact on them significantly. Hope you have a good season.
