Jo WIddecombe presents “The National Bee Improvement Programme”

The National Bee Improvement Programme has been proposed by BIBBA to reduce the demand for imports of other sub-species and to increase the quality of our bees.

Ireland is in the same geographical region as England, Wales and Scotland and, although perhaps not to the same extent, is also subject to imports of other sub-species threatening the quality of our native stock. We all share the same native bee and quite a lot of native bees are sent to Britain from Ireland.

The use of brought-in stock from other areas in the region is permitted under the scheme in order to re-enforce the native strain. Participants in the Programme will refrain from using imported stock, or offspring of recently imported stock, of other sub-species.
