This comment is interesting:
He said: "About 90 per cent of our crop pollination is done by wild bees while only 10 per cent is done by honeybees.
"It is important that the Government doesn't concentrate too much on honeybees. Investing all our time in that will not save us if we don't pay attention to the other 250 species of bees we have got here in this country.
"Even if we manage our honeybees perfectly we will still have a massive shortfall."
I can't find any fault with that argument, although it may not be what some beekeepers want to hear - and particularly not the BBKA.
