A number of WDBKA members took the opportunity to have their frames sterilised in preparation for the new season. Many thanks to Geoffrey for organising the meeting … lighting the fire and getting the tank up to temperature. It took all morning to give everything a thorough boil … leaving plenty of time between each load for a general catch up with bee related chat.
It is always good to have a fresh supply of clean frames ready for use … helping to keep our bees healthy. By the time all the frames were sorted and stacked to dry it was easy to see why it had taken so long …. there were an awful lot of them!
