Additional Bee Disease Insurance

The Ordinary Members’ subscription also includes ‘Scheme A’ Bee Disease Insurance cover for up to 3 hives. You can purchase additional cover here but if you have more than 39 colonies you should arrange insurance yourself under ‘Scheme B’ direct through Bee Diseases Insurance.

Multiple occupancy apiaries with uninsured colonies will render all BDI policies void. Premiums paid after 31 March give cover from 41 days after payment until 31 December that year. THE WHOLE OF THE APIARY WILL NOT BE COVERED for a period of 40 days wen additional BDI is purchased after membership registration.

*** Please note it is the number of colonies that you have at the time of inspection when foul brood is found that counts for insurance. All colonies must be covered by insurance. In the event of underinsurance, claims will be rendered invalid and no compensation paid. Members must therefore take out insurance for the number of colonies they anticipate having in the summer, including nucs, splits and swarms.
