A third of British wild bees and hoverflies are in decline, according to the BBC in a new study.
If current trends continue, some species will be lost from Britain altogether. Scientists warn that the loss of nature could create problems in years to come, including the ability to grow food crops.
Just to remind beekeepers everywhere to check their bees for stores as we are coming into a high risk time for starvation as the queen gets into gear and the remaining winter stores are used up. So give your hives a heft and if needed, give them some fondant or candy (not liquid feed!).
A one-day, classroom based, beekeeping course for the complete beginner, is scheduled for Saturday 16th March 2019, at the Picton Centre, Haverfordwest, SA61 1TP.
These courses have proven to be very popular and given many potential beekeepers the confidence to proceed to practical lessons with Pembrokeshire Beekeepers’ Association.
There are still a few places left, so if you are interested please book now!
