    BBKA - A Manifesto for Change

    How do we protect our native bee species

    Perhaps I should have put the word Buckfast in quotes to show it was the claim of the poster and not a fact or my opinion? :)

    How do we protect our native bee species

    Some profess to be breeding and improving the native bee. Then sells buckfast queens on this forum! Smart! No purity attempts are going to get close whilst we keep on allowing imported queens. Lets be honest, how many Buckfast Queens are ACTUALLY bred here? Just my little rant! :)

    Pollen storage

    If the frames containing pollen are to the sides where it is cold and possibly damp, that is away from the 'warmer' position of being near to the cluster, it may go mouldy.

    Is using the ignore function good for the soul, discuss.
