Willow

Willow (Helygen)

Willow is an important source of pollen for the bees in early spring. They need a lot of pollen at this time of year, as the queen begins to build up the colony again ready for summer. Pollen provides protein and is baby food for bees, so lots of pollen means lots of new bees!

The bees of Willow are also newcomers to the Llanrwst apiary. They come from a split hive in the Bodnant apiary to replace the hive lost over the winter of 2016. The hive was split because early signs of swarming were detected. The Bodnant bees have taken to their new home and wintered well.
