    Default Alan Hart of the BFA on Season 2015

    BBC R4's Farming Today had a piece on bees.

    Honey in very short supply this year .... 40% down in parts of the West ...... disastrous in Scotland ..... up to 60-75% down for Scotland and the Borders ...... difficulty meeting wage costs ......

    Weather poor for queen mating .... queens laying unfertilised eggs .....

    Varroa still the main threat.

    6 m 50 s in for the bee piece.

    Alan Hart is right as far as SW Scotland is concerned. Thank you for the link, Gavin.

    Seems to be a bit of a mixed bag in ireland, some have honey and others don't , it seems to be apiary location related rather than beekeeping technique
