NEXT ASSOCIATION MEETING

Monday 5th February 7:30pm. at The New Stags Head, Red street, Carmarthen. One of our members Mike Jones will be giving a talk on Poly Hives and Nucs. For those of you that don’t know what that is it’s  a recent innovation of using close moulded expanded polystyrene to make hives and nuc boxes. These boxes are in standard sizes so all frames and other equipment still fit them. 

ASIAN HORNET SIGHTING

The National Bee Unit has confirmed a sighting of the Asian Hornet at an apiary near Woolacombe in Devon. Work to identify, destroy and remove any nests is already underway.

Woolacombe to Carmarthen is 200 miles by road but is only 50 miles as the Hornet flies. Please  be vigilant. In the case of a suspected sighting, please contact alert_nonnative@ceh.ac.uk or your local bee inspector.
