Bee Inspectors – Southern Region

The Seasonal Bee Inspector contact information is available during the summer season (starting of April to end of September) on BeeBase at http://www.nationalbeeunit.com/public/Contacts/contacts.cfm

During the rest of the year it will only display the Regional Bee Inspectors’ contact details.

Please remember that the Seasonal Bee Inspectors are not paid by the National Bee Unit (NBU) from October through to the end of March and therefore are unlikely to reply to any messages left at that time of year.
