Oxford Bees

Colony 11

Submitted by will on Thu, 24/05/2018 - 07:25

Colony 11 originated in the Grandpont area of Oxford. Ann, who gave them to me, thought that they were a feral colony which had been forced out of a roof on Norreys Avenue by building work. She caught them and put them into an un-framed nucleus box.

I transferred the colony into a framed hive on 24th May 2018.
