Bee Improvement and Bee Breeding Groups

[…]and experience.A local group can pool expertise of different disciplines… honey bee management, record keeping, queen rearing, equipment making, administration, etc. More beekeepers means there are more colonies to select material from and to provide good quality drones, as well as maximising the number of colonies under management, evaluation and study.Groups can liaise with one another and with scientific institutions if […]

Honey bee origins, evolution & diversity – Ashleigh Milner

For most of the time the honey bees kept in any country would be indigenous to the locality. In the New World countries, where the true honey bees, Apinae, were originally absent, the early settlers imported the bees with which they were familiar. […]

Some history of the East Midlands group

We live in hope. During the course of our work with the beekeepers of the area, we have met and made new beekeeping friends. Among these […]

The black bee, an increasingly rare pearl

[…]have been disappearing massively all over the world. In the most affected apiaries, beekeepers record up to 90% loss (dead bees, unable to produce honey or which never return). This phenomenon is called the “bee colony collapse syndrome”.  In Europe, annual mortality rates between 2012 and 2014 were around 23% on average *, against 5% to 10% of natural mortality. In […]

How I select my ‘Breeder Queens’

If not, by all means design your own system, or look at what is offered in Section 4.1 of the NatBIP GUIDE at bibba.com. This can be used as it is, or modified, […]

Conserving black bees

Section 1.2 – Aims, Imports & Bee Breeding

[…]Problem with Imports Imports of bees have been growing, year on year, and, although currently at record levels, at best, only produce a short-term respite, in terms of quality. In the long-term no consistent improvement in the quality of our bees is achieved, and the system relies on further imports to maintain quality, albeit, with no local adaptation. They represent […]

Section 2.1 – How NatBIP will work

[…]An assessment of qualities can be made every time we inspect a colony during the active season and recorded on the Record Card. Whether we are working on bee improvement as an individual, or as a group, we must decide which qualities are important to us. The fewer the qualities we wish to select, the easier it is to make […]

Section 3.1 – The Selection of Local Stock

[…]to build up a picture of the qualities of each queen. Beekeepers are often quite used to keeping records for the general management of their colonies but perhaps less used to record-keeping for assessing the qualities of their bees. There is no single correct way to do this task and beekeepers may wish to devise their own system. The system […]

We can then select and cull the queens that we consider don’t display the chosen traits and replace them with ones that do. We then have our colonies headed by […]

[…]personal preferences, or indeed, you can design your own, or use someone else’s design. A ‘record of performance’ is quite different to a ‘management record card’ (although the NatBIP card can be used for both purposes) and specifically provides information on which queens are worth rearing offspring from. I have already started assessing my colonies for the characteristics that I […]
