Guidance From Scottish Bee Health Inspectorate

The Bee Health Teams of DEFRA, the Scottish and Welsh Governments have issued their advice and guidance for beekeeping in the UK given the current restrictions around COVID-19, which can be found by clicking here.

This guidance has been published on Beebase and if you are not already registered on Beebase it is a good idea to do so, not only will you receive notifications like this but also alerts if there is EFB or AFB within your area.

In summary, you should continue to care and manage your honey bee stocks in the normal manner whilst observing the government’s guidance on COVID-19 and social distancing.

Should you have any queries or need anything please do not hesitate to contact us.

We hope you and your bees stay safe and well.

BEEKEEPER'S ADDRESS TAE A HAGGIS

If you are celebrating the life, poetry or birthday of The Bard, Robert Burns, this week and want a beekeeping twist, download our Beekeeper's Address Tae a Haggis here or by clicking on Rabbie's face! This is courtesy of Alan Riach, one of our great chieftains, who gave a fantastic rendition of this at our autumn convention.

 

Cranachan

 

BURN's NIGHT DELIGHT!

Cranachan is the perfect Scottish dessert to finish off any Burn's supper. This was originally a summer dish consumed around harvest time, made with delicious Scottish ingredients like cream-crowdie, raspberries, heather honey, oats and whisky. For a modern, quick and easy recipe please click here or on the image.
