Warm greetings to all our friends at Kafuro and to all the other schools involved in QEPP. We haven’t posted an update on how our bees are doing for some time. Last week, Mr Stanley and Mr Haycock went up to see our hives. The original bees that we have had for four year known as the Bordon Bees (as they came from Bordon) were in good health with lots of numbers. They were able to take three frames of honey from the hives which will be filtered and put into jars for sale before Christmas. The second hive, which is a new colony, were more of a concern as the bees were smaller in number and they did not have great stores of honey. The bees will be fed with sugar solution and fondant icing over the winter months to give them a better chance of surviving the English winter.
We would like to know how the bees are at Kafuro and whether you have been able to buy a new bee suit and smoker yet?
We are also happy to answer questions that any other schools might have.
