Event description

Description

As you may be aware, there is a particular strain of EFB in Somerset which is virulent and difficult to eradicate. SBKA is committed to helping members identify disease and to support them in eliminating the incidences of EFB in the county. As part of this commitment we have arranged a practical day course, kindly organised by South East Division.

The Programme will be delivered by SW Regional Bee Inspector Simon Jones with the seasonal bee inspectors and former National Bee Inspector Richard Ball.

There will be an opportunity to safely handle diseased combs so beekeepers can see for themselves what to look for. Topics will include:

• BeeBase

• Notifiable pests and diseases-recognition

• Control and management of minor pests and diseases

• Asian Hornet (national policy requires the Bee Inspectorate to deliver a workshop on this subject at every Bee Health Day this season)

• Varroa- lifecycle, IPM and approved treatments

• Apiary hygiene and barrier management
