Pests and Diseases

Bees can suffer from a number of problems and it is extremely important that the beekeeper monitors and manages the hive. Some diseases do not need to be reported but also there are situations where it is necessary for the beekeeper to inform the Bee Inspector and the National Bee Unit.

The Association is always happy to provide support to its members in this regard to ensure the bees are healthy.

It is important that Beekeepers register on Bee Base so if there are any problems in the area they will provide information and take appropriate action.
