During September, on a warm day, we will look through the bees for the last time this year to make sure they are strong enough and heavy enough to get though the Dormant Season and into March.

Weak colonies are united with strong ones by putting the weak brood on top of the strong brood separated by two sheets of newspaper.  By the time they have chewed their way through the paper they are one colony.

The Water Balsam in The Sweetpools has been a bonus again this year.  We know they have been to the Water Balsam because the flower dusts each bee with grey pollen.  The bees fly home looking like ghosts.

We will be running a training course in February.  details on our website, just click our logo...

Hagley & Stourbridge Beekeepers' Association

Hagley & Stourbridge Beekeepers' Association promote and support beekeepers in the area though training courses, mentoring and we run a training apiary at Iverley.

Hagley & Stourbridge Beekeepers is part of Worcestershire Beekeepers' Association which in turn is part of the British Beekeepers' Association.

No one knows when we started because all our records were lost in 1998, we believe it was sometime in the 19th century.

Our aim is to buy a fragment of land in the area with vehicle access and nearby parking for up to ten cars, where we can establish a permanent teaching apiary with storage for our equipment.
