Mother's Day

Ahh, spring finally arrived, albeit only for a week or so and we took the opportunity to open the hives and see how the bees fared over the winter. This has been a stressful event the past few years as harsh winters and environmental toxins took their toll, resulting in high winter mortality. This year we are excited to report our lowest losses in 4 years! And the survivors got an early start to the season -- new brood have already been hatching out and field bees are already gathering nectar so we are optimistic about a having a good season.

There are also lots of shows at this time of year: We are always happy to participate in educational events, such as theGreen Living Show in Toronto and the Earth Week event at H&R Reit. And we had another successful day at the Erin Home & Lifestyle Show -- our hometown show!

We received apetition via Change.org supporting Canadian Beekeepers struggling in the face of growing competition from cheap imported honey. That includes illegal Chinese fake "honey" that is laced with antibiotics banned in Canada that has been so processed and mixed with sugar or corn starch that it is no longer considered to be honey. (See "Honey Laundering: The sour side of Nature's Golden Sweetener" Globe & Mail). 

This is a health issue as well as an economic one. The link to the petition is Here.
