How often should a bee hive be inspected?

In the summer, when the bees are active, about once a week in good weather. Don't leave it more than nine days without at least a quick inspection because that gives you chance to remove any developing queen cells to prevent a swarm.

In the winter you disturb them as little as possible in order not to chill them, but about once a month you should check they have enough food for the next month or so, and supplement with sugar syrup if necessary.

To learn more about bees, contact a local beekeeper or your nearest beekeeping association.
