Tony Maggs “Bee Farming with Native/Near Native Bees”

After pestering a friend of the family for many years, who was an experienced beekeeper in the Nottinghamshire Beekeepers Association, he eventually helped me to start beekeeping by taking me with him to hive a swarm.

Help Required

First, some background info. I'm Nick Mawby and have been a BIBBA member for 40 years. I'd had nothing to do with BIBBA organisation until 2015, when I complained to Roger Patterson that the website had not been updated in the four years since Dave Cushman had died. His response was, "well you sort it then". And so I took…

Varroa – is the end nigh?

On the 11th March 2020, I had the chance to attend a talk by Professor Stephen Martin on varroa.

Little did I realise at the time that this would be my last bee meeting before…

NatBIP – Selecting within a Strain

Hardy, Docile, Productive The problem with hybridisation It is interesting to speculate how the bee population in Britain and Ireland would develop without further human intervention.  If the processes of natural selection could operate freely, what would happen to the hybridised population that we see in many areas? Around 28 sub-species of honey bee have been identified in the original…

Conserving black bees

CONSERVING BLACK BEES (Apis mellifera mellifera) in the Hebrides, Scotland by ANDREW ABRAHAMS, via the American Bee Journal Readers might ask, why on earth spend much of a lifetime con­serving what most beekeepers perceive as an aggressive, unproduc­tive race of honey bee a race per­haps left behind by history?
