Welcome to the Devon Beekeepers Association

Registered Charity No.270675

Devon Apiculture Research Group


We have just been informed (June 2015) that one of our new members with two brand new national hives has had them and the incumbent bees stolen from an out apiary in Dawlish. 


Could secretaries ask members to be on the look out for anyone trying to sell two national hives either on eBay or in car boot sales?  The landing boards are painted red and yellow and the supers have castellated runners- there are three supers with the hives.

The hives were in the corner of a very secluded orchard which were not easily seen from the country lane. Perhaps it might be prudent to advise members to mark or brand their hives so that at least they would be able to recognise them should they fall victim to theft.

Draft amendments to DBKA's Constitution.

It is important that all members read and consider these proposed amendments to the Constitution.
