The BFA has been made aware by one of its members that 17 overwintered nuclei with 2019 queens have been stolen from an apiary site east of York in the past few days. These nuclei are in Maisemore nucleus boxes, painted brick red. The theft has been reported to the police.

I can see any second hand poly nucs being sold in future getting a good scraping to see what colour paint is underneath the topcoat
