bees are located in an area called
Dunsmore Heath, near the villages of Ryton on Dunsmore, Stretton on
Dunsmore and Wolston. The bees have access to both the crops in
the farmer's fields and also the flowers in the village gardens.

diet. This is a more natural situation for them when
compared to colonies which are located in remote rural areas with
only mono-floral forage.
