Scottish Beekeepers Association
The Scottish Beekeepers Association, founded in 1912, is the national beekeeping body for Scotland. We represent our members at national and international level.
The association was first registered as a Scottish charity in 1942, and became a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) on 9 December 2014.
The SBA is entirely independent of any other UK beekeeping associations. It does not employ any paid staff and so everyone who contributes to the work of the association is a volunteer.
SBA / COLOSS Surveys
The SBA/COLOSS annual survey is currently running. Many thanks to those who have responded so far, either online or by post. Responses in by 10th JULY will be included in our annual data return to COLOSS for analysis of the international data. The survey will remain open until the END OF JULY and all responses made by then will be used in the analysis of the Scottish data.
The full report from the findings of the 2014 survey is available via the link on the surveys page.
