The bees collected nectar was because the spring was cold and rainy, gardens quickly faded.
Bukovynian beekeepers began to pump out the honey in May, which is considered the most valuable. I complained that this year compared to last, it will be three times less.
- We picked up a little honey and May are almost all sold - Chernivtsi assured experienced pasichnytsya Maria. - But this year there will be such " harvest " as the past. May was cold and rainy. Mould acacia, and it provides nectar at 17-20 ° C, and it was 10-12 degrees. We hope for lime, although it will also depend on the weather.
- I know obdzvonyv beekeepers from all regions of Bukovina. They complain that gathered little honey in May - about 30 percent compared with last year's collection, - said Vladimir Dudka beekeeper who keeps his apiary in a village Kitsmanschyny. - Some areas were without honey at all, especially Novoselytsya, Sokyryany, Kelmentsi, Vyzhnytsya, Hlyboka, Storozhynets. There were cold nights, flowers, fruit trees and acacia nectar is not isolated. Bees were working solely on ourselves - to feed themselves. There are beekeepers who did not pumped honey, and are 200 bee families. Slightly better situation in Kitsmanschyni and Zastavnivschyni, because it is blooming acacia later. For example, I had about half of last year's harvest, because the 2015th was very honeybee.
More managed to collect honey by beekeepers, beehives are located near fields of rape. Beginning linden blossom. But it highlights the nectar every five or six years. Therefore it is difficult to say whether medonosytyme this year. A similar situation throughout Ukraine. I phoned beekeepers from Mykolaiv, Odesa, Dnipropetrovsk and complained that almost nothing is collected. Buckwheat Bukovina recently they sow. So buckwheat honey will not. If someone sells a local, this is a lie. There is only sunflower, although it is sown everywhere. My bees to the fields not reaches. We can therefore say that I medosbor has expired, although summer just started. I traveled almost the whole area. I concluded that the sow fields mainly wheat and soy. And these crops do not give honey. Beekeepers have suffered big losses because the state we generally does not help. This is a disaster! Survives only due to the fact that selling Bee packages in the eastern regions. Join "MB " in social networks VK , Classmates , Facebook
