Eirlys means ‘snowdrop’ in Welsh, and is a popular girl’s name in North Wales. Snowdrops are an excellent source of food for hungry bees in the cold winter months of February and March. At this time of year the bees tend to stay in the hive and live off the honey they collected the previous year. On bright days however the bees will make short flights for water and any food that might be available, such as from snowdrops and crocuses.
Eirlys bees were originally raised by NBCW director John Humphreys, so they come with a good pedigree. They’re good Welsh black bees so they’re well suited to the climate. They came to their new home here in Llanrwst in September 2014.
