Site search:



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.

Founds a bees’ nest in your house or garden?

This is the time of year when bees, both honeybees and wild bees, are often found establishing nests in gardens, trees, under sheds etc. We receive many calls from members of the public requesting help and advice in dealing with these situations. Please refer to the self-help page here BEFORE contacting us or another beekeeper for assistance, as in many cases either no intervention is required, or the level of help required is more that a beekeeper can offer. Thank you.
