Wisley Specific 2/9/18
We use office water dispensers as a delivery mechanism to top up the colony with extra food for the winter. This is helping the local pollinators because our bees are not left to go hungry at any time during the year. If they were then local pollinators my find limited supplies out there in the fields. Our bees have the choice to use our energy drink, the sugar syrup, to generate the extra heat they need to keep warm in winter. Just like us they need to maintain a body temperature but at a much lower hibernating level of about 8 degrees centigrade.
