LABELLING YOUR HONEY
Here is a pdf version of a presentation I recently gave to the BSSA concerning packaging, labelling and related topics. I hope you find something in here that is useful.
I was fortunate enough last winter to be asked by Sophie Thompson if I would like to make a short section with her for the ABC’s Gardening Australia programme. It was to be aired during Mental Health week, and of course I was delighted to help out. You can see a short clip here….
This has been such a dreadful season for honey production and the maintenance of good strong colonies.
The bees have found it very difficult to find sufficient food supplies (pollen and necter) to build their numbers up AND put honey asside for later on.
A large number of bee keepers have started to feed their colonies both syrup and in some cases pollen.
The pollen can be fed either as a dry, cleaned pollen for bees, or mixed in to pollen patties. You can have a look at Bee Scientifics’ website for more information.
If you are concerned about the discussion that bees will turn sugar syrup into honey; they won’t. Here is a great article that summarises that theory very nicely.
