To aid the development of Dean Forest and surrounding area bee stock, Dean Forest Beekeepers will be offering a queen exchange programme this season.
The main aims are to improve the characteristics of bees and to help DFB members overcome issues such as drone laying queens.
To participate in the programme bring us an unwanted queen (dead or alive) and we will provide you with a replacement mated queen, free of charge!
Queens will be limited to one per member depending on demand and stock levels, all we ask for in return is your feedback on the supplied queen later on when requested.
