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.

Overwinter Survival Survey Request

Thankyou to all who have sent in their information on winter losses and a last minute reminder to those who have not yet done so. The survey will close at the end of June. A short report will then be avaialble for the latest data but all the information for the past 5 years will later be assessed by indpendant analysts from Dundee University.

The final full report should be useful and interesting.

John Durkacz

surveyclipboardHere are the forms for a final overwinter survival survey for the Dundee/SBA collaboration.

There are only minor differences from the 2016 spring survey. As this is the final survey, this will mean that there will be 6 years of cumulative data for an independant assesment and report. There is a background and instruction sheet alongwith the single page questionnaire which we kindly ask you to complete and return.
