Learning the art of beekeeping is a fascinating past-time, but beware it can become addictive from the very first time you open a hive and peer inside!

It is an interest that can just keep growing, as you begin to understand more and more about how these little insects work as an incredible and complex

colony there is endless knowledge to gain. Bees are under threat and need our help to survive, by understanding the behaviour and instincts of the

honey bee along with their needs and the problems they are encountering you can help a vital part of our environment.
