Coronavirus – Covid-19

You will be aware that most events and meetings in the UK have been cancelled as from 16 March 2020 to prevent the spread of this virus. If you plan to attend any beekeeping event, please check with the organisers for up-to-date information.

BBKA have published some helpful pages:

Please also read Government social distancing guidelines and the BeeBase bulletin and advice pages

In a nutshell, we must continue to tend our bees within the constraints of social distancing; alone, or with another member of the same household.

If you are self-isolating and cannot care for your bees please let your association know how they can help.

Swarm collection continues but within the constraints of social distancing. If you cannot take the swarm without keeping the safe 2 meter distance, you must let the swarm go.
