Details

Are your bees as healthy as they could be? The National Bee Unit (NBU) Wales, in collaboration with the National Botanic Garden of Wales and the Growing the Future Project, will be running a comprehensive Bee Health event at the Garden on the weekend of Saturday June 22nd to Sunday June 23rd. Running on both days there will be presentations for beekeepers looking at bee disease in Wales, including brood disorders and notifiable disease, varroa mite control and biosecurity. Those enrolling will have an opportunity to join in an inspection at the Garden apiary, where we will demonstrate inspecting hives the NBU way.

Indoors you will have the chance to see diseased combs, displayed under special licence, to give attendees first hand and, we hope only, experience of brood disease. We will also be providing stalls of information covering a wider range of pests and diseases and relevant good beekeeping practice, from varroa control to biosecurity and exotic pests.

These breakout workshops will provide an opportunity for beekeepers to meet some of the NBU team in Wales, to get an understanding of the purpose and value of the Inspectorate’s work and, most importantly, to develop their knowledge and diagnosis of the key pest and disease threats to their bees.

Protective aprons and disposable gloves will be provided for the comb workshop, we will require attendees to comply with the biosecurity measures we have in place. Beesuits and disposable gloves will be provided for the apiary sessions, but stout footwear will be required.
