Hannahs bees return to Seale-Hayne


Hannahs bee colonies have returned to Seale-Hayne. All four colonies over wintered at Bishopsteignton and all survived the mild weather. All the colonies are now back by the pond at Seale-Hayne and the Queens are already laying to build up the colony numbers for the ‘honey flow’.

Did you know that bee pollen is approximately 25% complete protein containing at least 18 amino acids? In addition, bee pollen provides more than a dozen vitamins, 28 minerals, 11 enzymes or co-enzymes, 14 beneficial fatty acids, 11 carbohydrates, and is rich in minerals, the full spectrum of vitamins, and hormones. It is low in calories and delicious!

For those interested there is a talk on Bee Colony Declines by Dr Jay Evans, Research Entomologist at the United States Department of Agriculture, Beltsville. It will take place at Seale Hayne on Tuesday, 8th April 2014 7:30pm-9:30pm. Register for £5 eTickets with Kathy Lovegrove, by email anemone1975@talktalk.net
