Irish queen bees - Mini-grafting of larvae 24 hours old - get your grubs from a friendly Buckfast beekeeper!

IBBA  The Irish Buckfast Beekeepers’ Association  is affiliated to the Federation of European Buckfast Beekeepers’ Associations (GdeB)

I have to conclude that if you have the right strain/race of bee they will adjust to almost anything the British climate can throw at them and the losses we do suffer are all part of the natural selection that is helping to keep the bees well adapted.
