Well, well, well. Finally we went and did a beekeeping course. Here are pictures taken during our practical.
Get your smokers going before you start on your hive(s).
Open the lid carefully and give them a little dose.
Take out frames as required. (Nice gloves!)
Inspect ....... and look knowledgeable.
Have a bee. It's only a drone.
There's more where that came from. (No, they weren't all drones.)A marvellous time was had by all. :)
