Gwenyn / Bees
We have set up an apiary at the school. We now have three bee hives and hope to produce Mel San Siôr soon.
We hope you enjoy reading about our bees.
|We have three bee hives in our apiary. We have used Welsh slate posts to separate the apiary from the rest of the Butterfly Garden. We host Open Eco Afternoons where we explain to parents how the apiary works.A camera points at the entrance to the hive and sends images of the bees to a monitor in the school foyer. We would like to thank ‘Bay Tree Hotel’ and ‘Home Cookin’ for sponsoring the school apiary project so generously.|
|The bees arrived as a nucleus and we transferred the frames to the hive||A camera points at the entrance to the hive and sends images of the bees to a monitor in the school foyer||Bees arrive with pollen in their pollen baskets on their hind legs. The pollen can be orange, white and even green, depending on the flowers they have visited|
