Border Bees Diary

Diary of a Beekeeper in the Scottish Borders


<a href=”;add=”><img src=”; alt=”Add to Technorati Favorites” /></a>

I am a  beekeeper living near the River Tweed on the Border between Scotland and  England. I am interested in all of the issues facing beekeepers:

  • varroa parasites,
  • pesticides,
  • importations of new alien parasites and viruses,
  • falling numbers of beekeepers and diminishing skills.

I also hope that much of the blog will celebrate the good things about bees and beekeeping – which is why we are all involved – it is a celebration of Nature, biodiversity and life itself.
