BIBBA Buzz 11 – July 2017

BIBBA Conference 2018 We need a venue for the next conference. Going backwards they have been held in The Isle of Man, Llangollen, Scotland, Ireland and Stoneleigh. It seems reasonable to move the conference around to satisfy all our members, but at the same time the location needs to have good transport connections. We need two rooms that will take…

BIBBA encourages members to work with other local beekeepers to select and improve the quality of bees in their area by using the best local material available.

BIBBA does not support the importation of honey bees as not only does it pose a health risk to our bees but importation also works against the development of local adaptation. The mixing of different sub-species  makes selection and improvement of our bees more difficult due to hybridisation and it negates the effects of ‘natural selection’ which produces a hardier…
