There are three types of BIBBA event to help and encourage beekeepers to raise their own queens from locally adapted colonies, rather than to use imported queens that may not suit their environment, or run the risk of importing pests and diseases.
BIBBA are committed to helping beekeepers to improve their bees in a number of ways, including courses, workshops, demonstrations, lectures and conferences. These will be in line with the aims of BIBBA, with the emphasis on native bees and those displaying their characteristics.
Events are of different durations and can take a number of forms, both with and without live bees. They are often run in conjunction with local hosts, mainly BKAs.
We have standard events that with minor adjustments can be staged in any locality.Please see below for brief description, then press “Read More” button for full description.
Dates and details of BIBBA events that are planned will be added to the website and announced to members; non-members can sign up here for BIBBA Humm
If you would like an event in your area, either a standard one or something different to suit you, please contact BIBBA Conference and Workshop Secretary Roger Patterson by email to discuss it.
