Beebase is a great source of information, if you register you will receive a warning should disease be found in your area.
BeeBase is the National Bee Unit website. It is designed for beekeepers and supports Defra, WAG and Scotland's Bee Health Programmes and the Healthy Bees Plan, which set out to protect and sustain our valuable national bee stocks.
Their website provides a wide range of free information for beekeepers, to help keep their honey bees healthy and productive.
They hope both new and experienced beekeepers will find this an extremely useful resource and sign up to BeeBase. Knowing the distribution of beekeepers and their apiaries across the country helps them to effectively monitor and control the spread of serious honey bee pests and diseases, as well as provide up-to-date information in keeping bees healthy and productive. By telling them who you are you'll be playing a very important part in helping to maintain and sustain honey bees for the future.
Joining a Beekeeping Association has many advantages for both new beekepers and the more experienced.
