Chris Clarks Apiary report.
Despite a 09.00 start the temperature was 27 degrees C by the time we left. The bees were very docile. Apart from Richards colony, which only had open brood on one frame, all were strong, healthy and productive. Supers were put above crown boards with porter-escapes in three colonies for extracting. Once these are returned there will be more to extract.
