The native black honey bee is alive & well.

Suspicion was our native honey bee Apis melifera melifera could only be found in a few very remote areas.
A recent survey funded by the Co-op sheds new light.

Great news indeed.

Thanks for that Tav. I am involved in two black bee breeding projects - a very slow road largely due to the weather (as in standstill progress this year).

You can easily spot the areas inhabited by BIBBA stalwarts so the picture is a bigger one. We have checked out a new source this year on the edge of our area who wouldn't have heard of Discovery with a good number of stocks around the 70-80% mark - thankfully there will be more like him.
