Beekeepers are reporting colonies on the verge of starvation following a particularly poor run of weather in July. Especially at times of year when colonies are committed to raising a lot of brood, starvation can happen remarkably quickly. The forecast for the next week is not much better, so this is a gentle reminder to check the level of stores in your colonies. Any colonies which are particularly light can be saved by any of the usual feeding methods.
