The season has started: Bee Tradex

Max, Sebastian and Jon were kept busy at Bee Trade Exhibition 2016 in Stoneleigh, England, last Saturday. They thought it was one of the busiest days they had had at a Vita stand in Britain.

There were lots of enquiries about the Asian hornet trap — and orders were placed and a significant number of repeat purchases. There was good feedback about Apiguard’s ability to control Varroa numbers and Apistan is still being used quite happily by many beekeepers, aware that they need to keep a watchful eye on resistant Varroa.

In a new exhibition hall, there was plenty of room to move around even though there were an enormous number of polystyrene hives on display.

One of the new items that caught my eye was a man-sized electric hive-lifting trolley.

I couldn't quite fathom out how this honey bottler worked, but it looked impressive!
