It’s that time of year. The swarming season. It starts when the first dandelion bursts into flower and lasts until the summer solstice is over, just over a month from now. So why do bees swarm ?
Beekeeping is a hands-on job: all of the senses are engaged when working with bees: touch, smell, hearing, vision and finally, most delightfully, taste. It is a truly immersive craft.
