Foul brood diseases
Jonathan Baynes (who is our very own National Bee Unit Seasonal Bee Inspector) will provide us with vital knowledge about this important subject on Sunday 5th November at 2.30 p.m. for 2.45 p.m. at the Fulbourn Centre (CB21 5BS).
Fortunately, most of us go through beekeeping without coming across foul brood diseases, but they can strike seemingly at random.
In this talk, Jonathan will discuss the two notifiable foul broods, how to recognise them, and what action will be taken, if your bees are found to be affected, explaining his role in this as a Seasonal Bee Inspector. He will go on to describe apiary hygiene methods that will help keep the diseases out of your hives and, should the worst happen, reduce the consequences of these diseases on your apiaries.
