THE BRITISH BEE
Bees are carefully selected by Kirsty from colonies showing the best Apis Melifera Melifera characteristics
Bees of dark colour enabling greater absorption of solar radiation
Bees with a compact brood pattern surrounded by an arc of pollen and honey stores, thus increasing survival rate in a long cold winter
Bees that fly in low temperatures
Bees that adjust their breeding rate to suit the weather and therefore income
Bees that produce good honey yields even in poor summers
Bees that cluster tightly in winter and are frugal in their consumption of stores
Bees that often choose not to swarm.
One of Kirsty’s British bees gathers nectar from the Flowering Currant that is abundant in the Ceiriog Valley.
