The demonstration at Murton apiary was very well attended with about twenty members from beginners to very experienced Beekeepers. This despite the Royal wedding was a counter attraction. Martin passed around a couple of Horsley boards before opening up a hive. Neither of the colonies at Murton were in swarm mode with queen cells but we were shown how to use the board for swarm control and in the process effecting a split which would normally give a new mated queen for an increase in colonies or to recombine the two and removing the older queen.
