Kilgraston’s Beekeeping Society

Kilgraston’s Beekeeping Society

As we celebrate World Bee Day, Kilgraston’s Beekeeping Society had their first hive inspection of the newly installed Kilgraston apiary.

Until now, the hives have been kept sealed to ensure the colonies are settled and warm. Science technician and qualified bee-keeper, Mrs Blackler together with Steve Fulton, former president of the Perthshire Beekeeping Society, instructed the society members on what to look for in the hives and to check for brood (baby bees) and that the queen bee was laying eggs.

In the next session, they will look to identify the Queens and mark them.
