Spring is early and watch for swarms

hi again, you will have noticed lots of activity with the hives recently, spring is early so make sure you get into your hives and check your queens have enough space for laying and your bees for making honey...

and as per my last post about AFB locally, be extra careful if you collect any swarms in the area.  Keep the swarm separate from your existing hives and inspect frequently for AFB and other diseases.  Don't merge the swarm with an existing hive until you are sure it is disease free.
