Several local associations have already made a voluntary declaration to work exclusively with our native Irish honeybee.
Derry and district BKA last night voted to become a voluntary conservation area for Amm. Other groups to have done the same this year are; Co Offlay BKA, North Kildare BKA, South Kildare BKA and South Laois BKA.
Menapian Beekeepers Association and Menapian Bee Breeders Group declare that we work exclusively with native Irish honey bees, working where and when possible to re-queen hybridized colonies.
We have two current projects on-going:
Testing the isolation intregity of the small Saltee
Rewilding Native Honeybees in Co. Wexford
those sound like great projects John
