Mr Len Dixon, regional bee inspector for Hereford, Worcester and Gloucestershire and Avon and Somerset came to speak to Staunton WI. He has set up a bee disease inspection service and also teaches beekeeping practice. Tonight he regaled the members with the history of beekeeping and the life of bees inside the hive. On being thanked he was told we would never regard our jars of honey in the same light seeing as how the bee “spits” the pollen out of its mouth several times to make one drop of honey!
