Hello fellow ACT beekeepers,
we were checking our suburban Canberra hives today and identified in these over wintered colonies capped frames of honey just in. These frames have been filled with local Ironbark honey that the bees have been collecting actively since its been in full flower for the past week. These frames were only recently added to this colony as sticky frames removed from the the cool-room where they had been stored away from any wax moth that could damaged them.
I can only assume that other ACT beekeepers are experiencing similar harvests…, regardless of their hive type all be it that these frames were harvested from TechnosetBee bee hives.
This should indicate another good honey harvest year for Canberra beekeepers, anyone strong enough is welcome to pop around and see how long they can hold these full frames of honey over their head, LOL!!!
As they say, don’t forget to eat your honey…
