Graham Royle

Beekeeper

At our March Meeting on the 12th,

Graham gave an interesting illustrated talk on beekeeping and bees. 

One surprising piece of information he gave us was the fact that honey bees are thriving. This is due to the fact that interest in beekeeping has grown. In the past 15 years the number of beekeepers in Cheshire has almost doubled to around 650. 

The bad news is that bumble bees and other native bees are continuing to suffer a decline. 

The Asian Hornet!

A threat to all native bees and insects

How to spot an Asian hornet: They

  • have a dark brown or black velvety body

  • have a yellow or orange band on fourth segment of abdomen

  • have yellow tipped legs

  • are smaller than the native European hornet

  • are not active at night

Please note, all our planned meetings are cancelled until further

notice due to Covid 19 restrictions

Please take care and enjoy your garden if you can
