On the 3rd of September, the MVBKA will be holding their annual honey show at their stall at the Alresford Show. Entries are now open so read the honey show schedule here before entering. If you have never entered a show we have several novice classes that are open for you. If you have any questions please do get in touch.

Swarm List

We are now in the swarm season so members who wish to recieve swarms, and those of you who want to collect swarms are reminded to fill out the form here so that we can keep our list up to date. For anyone who would like to learn how to collect swarms but with no prior experience we can match you up with collectors in your area so that you can learn the skills required. 

Winter Loss Survey

Back in March, we asked our members to fill out our Winter Loss Survey so a complete picture of colony survival could be ascertained across the area covered by the MVBKA. Total losses were at 18.75% which is lower than the 19.1% of 2020-21. For more information read the full report here.
