DaDBeeP is attempting to use a sustainable approach to protect and increase the local bee population. Our interests are in all types of bees (honey, bumble and solitary) and the use of bee-friendly methods to help not exploit them.

Meeting 4 July 2012
Thanks to everyone who made it last night: even the terrible weather hasn't dampend the level of enthusiasm. Given the amount of wet weather most people were reporting positive results, with plenty of hive activety as soon as the rain stops. Only Pete from Belper seemed to be unsure if his swarm has progressed very much over the last three or four weeks - he reported a lack of bees and no real comb building. Hopefully this might not be as bad as it appears but I am calling over this evening so we can check it out; Tim gratefully said he had spare bees if they were needed.
So "thanks again" and hopefully see you all at the next meeting:
