* Please note that it is not possible to open hives in the rain. Protective bee suits and smocks are provided. Please bring in your own wellies or boots and long socks, wear long trousers such as jeans and a long-sleeved top.

Honeybees are usually calm if they are handled properly. Nether the less, beekeeping very occasionally involves getting stung. So we respectfully ask anyone who has a history of allergic reactions to stings not to join in the hive inspection and please note you will be required to sign a disclaimer form prior to inspections.
