I have needed to send this off for a while. The honey I took from the hives back in July ( the spring honey) is going to be sent off to have a DNA analysis undertaken.
The objective of the analysis is too assess long term impacts on UK floral resources in the changing environment.
I am hoping that we not only help with this national scheme, understand where our bees have been and what they have been foraging in the spring.
