We had one of our rare (and therefore much-awaited) winter hive visits on 2 December. Luke Dixon (LSE Bees’ professional beekeeper) was on hand to personally inspect the hives, answer our questions and explain to us about what bees do in the wintertime. We also had the rare privilege of poking a finger into one of the hive frames and tasting the freshest honey you can possibly get.
We will leave the bees alone over Christmas, but we can’t wait to see them again at the next hive visit in January!
