“Are you concerned about the health of your Bees or would just like some reassurance that all is well?”
We have 3 experienced beekeepers who have completed the National Bee Unit’s training on Bee Health and can check your bees are healthy.
They hold test kits for the 2 notifiable diseases AFB and EFB.
