Just to remind the beekeepers out there that if you use any treatments in your beehives they will be classed as veterinary medicines and as such there are various rules and regulations to follow. For an article providing details and advice click here.
We are now offering a disposal service for pharmaceutical waste for L&DBKA members. This is available at present during apiary opening hours and is currently free of charge. Please crush your waste (which should not include outer wrappings or boxes, etc. that have not been in contact with the medicines) as much as possible as the disposal service works on volume.
