    Do we have a spray liason officer?

    • Hi Norman.

      Not sure exactly what you are after – please elaborate.

        A lot of other associations maintain them, basically liase with local farmers/spray contractors so that they are aware of where hives are, and can inform beekeepers when spraying is going to take place and where.

        The downside of the ban on neonics is that we’re likely to see a lot more spraying this year, and as I’m situated next to a big farmed field I thought I’d check if we had a liason. I’ve since discovered via the BBKA that it looks like we don’t!
