Eirlys

Eirlys

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.

The Eirlys bees are a new colony brought to the apiary in the autumn of 2017. Unfortunately, the bad summer weather of that year led to the loss of all our hives. The new Eirlys bees have settled in well and seem very happy in their new home in the Conwy Valley.
