Doctor fish

 

I’ve always wanted to try doctor fish! I love foot massages and this must be similar.

To sum it up in bullet points

  • Doctor fish come from Turkey.
  • They eat dead skin.
  • I must have a lot of dead skin because they loved me.
  • You can feel them biting and it feels SO good.
  • It’s nothing like a foot massage.
  • I am hooked!!

Hive death by wax moth

Not really the kind of pictures I want to post to this page. But as I do like to be transparent with my beekeeping I thought I would show you what takes 10% to 20% percent of my hives each year…… Wax moth larva, A moth !?! … seriously! A moth can  wipe out a colony of bees…it’s moth.

Whinging aside this normally only happens if the hive is weak but I have seen a strong colony go down from wax moths after an onslaught of attacks from giant hornets, those hornets never made it into the hive they just laid siege to it  not letting the bees leave.
