Healthy Bee Day 2019

A “Healthy Bee Day” will be held at Awbridge Village Hall SO51 0HG on Saturday, 29th June from 9 am to 5 pm.

It is kindly sponsored by Bee Diseases Insurance and led by our seasonal bee inspector.

Only two such events are held in each NBU region each year so we are fortunate in having one in our county.


  • Apiary hygiene and disease control
  • Disease inspections
  • Disease comb recognition
  • European and American Foulbrood and other brood disorders
  • Small Hive Beetle and Tropilaelaps monitoring
  • Varroa – Integrated Pest Management
  • Asian Hornet update

The charge for the day is £10 per person. Light refreshments will be provided.

To book your place please email

You will need to bring:

  • A packed lunch (teas and coffees will be provided)
  • Your freshly cleaned bee suit or jacket and veil, boots and gloves. Leather gloves will not be permitted.

Please go to for directions to the hall. Parking availability is good.

Please note that the visit to the hives is weather dependent.
