This year’s bad weather has forced some beekeepers to feed their swarms to keep them alive, says the National Beekeeping Centre for Wales.
Pete Barrar, a director at the Conwy-based centre, also claims there could be less honey on sale this autumn, with some keepers failing to harvest any.
Some hives are being fed sugar syrup solutions to prevent starvation.
With bees struggling for survival, Mr Barrar also fears their numbers could be reduced next year.
