Hello from Oxfordshire in the UK


Hi, newbie here! I live in the UK in Oxfordshire. My bee keeping partner and I completed a 6 week beginners course in Jan/feb and in May alone we have collected five swarms so far. A mix of primary and cast so we are currently trying to maintain order and watch the colonies grow! It’s facinating. The long term goal is to have 10 to 15 by the end of the year and build our apiary from there. Any advice welcome. Hello to the group x


Hi there. :wave: Good luck with your new apiary!

good luck and welcome to the hive buddy forum :slight_smile:


Are you using standard size Langstroth or national size? The swarms that your catching from local bee yard? And last because I love bees are they the English black bee or Italian? Is there a local bee group there. Thanks for all my questions :nerd_face::nerd_face::nerd_face::honeybee::honeybee::honeybee::heart:
