Fewster’s Farm Honey – September 2022 News
Welcome to the September issue of our Newsletter!
From the Bee Keeper…
Throughout September, as the days start to get longer, Queen egg production increases. This increases the size of the nest and results in growing bee numbers. On warmer days we see more activity around the entrance of the hive. When the weather permits, we inspect the hives every 9-14 days but are careful not to disturb the hive too much as we don’t want the bees to swarm. Warmer weather and an increase in nectar and pollen can trigger swarm instinct in bees
September is the first month when we can requeen a colony. Typically this only happens from September to February.
International Honey Month is held annually during September. It aims to promote beekeeping, the beekeeping industry and the use of honey as a natural and beneficial sweetener. Fewster’s Farm Jarrah Honey is high in fructose and low in glucose. Honey with a high fructose content have a low Glycemic Index* (GI) making it the preferred sweetener for diabetics.
Celebrating International Honey Month is a vital step in raising awareness for the industry, honey making and of course the bees themselves. They are afterall Mother Nature’s miracle! Bees importance to the environment, ecosystems and pollination is critical. In fact, it is estimated one-third of the average person’s diet is derived from insect-pollinated plants, and bees are responsible for about 80 percent of the process!
