Beekeepers in areas affected by the forest fires can get help to feed their swarms from Wednesday, the National Federation of Beekeepers (FNAP) of Portugal said.

To receive the help they can contact the local beekeepers’ organisation, the association said.

 

FNAP estimated that following the fires there are “2,245 farms whose future are totally or partially threatened, affecting some 110,615 hives”

 

Last week, the minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Rural Development, Capoulas Santos, said in Oliveira do Hospital that this week there would be specific aid for beekeeping, with beekeeping organisations distributing 70 tons of sugar to make molasses, which is an alternative food for bees while there is no flowers.

You write, "...molasses, which is an alternative food for bees while there is no flowers." You mean "while there ARE no flowers." Grammar matters. You are journalists. Be professional, please.
