We were pretty sure all was OK but David sought advice from the Bee Inspector after our last visit and they met at Green Lane today to double check all was in order. David says he is now very clear about how to recognise the difference between sac brood and early chalk brood. Our biggest concern is still varroa - counts are still high but the colonies seem strong.  Virgin queens were found in both GL4 and GL5 so that will knock the varroa back!
