Isle of Man versus Varroa and Foulbrood.


Were you aware that the bees on the Isle of Man are Varroa and Foulbrood-free?

We have been asked to spread the word about the danger to them as in the past week the Isle of Man's Senior Bee Inspector has announced that a colony of bees may have been brought in from outside the Isle of Man.

This could be a catastrophe for their bees and they are asking that anyone who might know of the colony(s) to get in touch as swiftly as possible so that the situation can be contained.

If anyone has any information that could help, the contact details of their Bee Inspector, Harry Owens, are:
harryowens@manx.net

Could you also please make sure that all beekeepers in the UK are informed about the protected state of Manx bees.

Many thanks for any help you can offer.

Kind regards

Wendy and the Bee Craft team
