Do you have dark native honey bees?

The Scottish Native Honey Bee Conservation Project

The Scottish Native Honey Bee Society is asking beekeepers in Scotland to help find examples of the native honey bee, Apis mellifera mellifera.

If you think you have dark bees with no significant orange banding, please consider taking some good photos and submitting them to the SNHBS survey.

For more information about the project, and how to participate, please visit the SNHBS website here, and here.

  1. We have been getting a lot of what I think is wild bees. Some days 2/3. This has never happened previously. We do have a very floriferous garden
