Honey bee health: guidance
Health Strategy

Following the recent review of Scotland’s first 10-year Honey Bee Health Strategy, the Scottish Government Honey Bee Health Team, together with the Bee Health Improvement Partnership (BHIP), made a commitment to issue a survey to gather the views of the beekeeping community and those with an interest in honey bees, to help identify the areas which can be improved upon to best continue supporting Scotland’s honey bees in future years. 

The survey is now live and we would be grateful if you would take the time to complete it with the responses helping to determine and guide us on the direction of the new 10-year honey bee health strategy which is due for publication by June 2022.  Please note that the survey closes on Friday 28th January 2022.

The survey is anonymous, voluntary and replies cannot be traced back to individuals. 

If you have any questions please get in touch with us at: Bees_mailbox@gov.scot
