An updated map of AFB and EFB outbreaks in Northern Ireland has been release by DARD this week. The advice for beekeepers is to remain vigilant and check all colonies for disease. If you suspect anything then please avail of the services we have in place through AFBI and your local bee inspectors.
Please contact your local bee inspector for further details of the recognition and control of foulbrood, the present situation regarding Small Hive Beetle and Tropilaelaps or if you are planning to import or export honeybees or bumblebees. Visit the DARD Bee Health page for more information.
