Protect your hives from wasps! A number of Somerset beekeepers are losing colonies to wasps and we suggest reducing the entrance to just one bee-width and putting out wasp traps. If you lose a colony to wasps you may want to move your other hives out of the apiary for the rest of the summer.
Don't use varroa treatment when the temperatures are so high - it could harm the queens. If you've harvested your honey, it's tempting to start making preparations for the winter. But hold off if you can until it's not so hot.
