Bee Improvement for All – Yeovil

Dear Beekeeping Colleague,

In conjunction with the Bee Improvement and Bee Breeders Association (BIBBA) Yeovil Division of Somerset BKA will be holding a ‘Bee Improvement for All’ day. This is one of a number that BIBBA will be staging throughout the country on a regional basis. We have tried to select a date as far ahead as possible in the hope it does not clash with other events.

If you could publicise this event in your newsletters, website and meetings it would be appreciated to ensure this message goes to as many beekeepers as possible.

Bee Improvement for All

An all day event aimed at encouraging all beekeepers to improve their bees. The purpose is to help all beekeepers to continuously assess their colonies, so they have a good idea of which queens to cull, and which colonies to take queen cells from when they need new queens.

There will be tuition on how to raise queens using queen cells that bees often present us with during the summer, as well as some simple ‘artificial’ techniques that may be suitable for the more advanced beekeeper, or those working in groups.
