Practical information for bee keepers


The BEE SHOP research project has addressed specific issues relating to honey contamination by pesticides and treatments used to combat pests and pathogens in the hive. It has produced a manual for beekeepers on the best husbandry practices to preserve the hygiene of the hive, practical information on disinfection in pictures and a number of outcomes on the potential to increase bee resistance to viruses and parasites. Further information is available on the website of the project.

As laid down in Directive 91/414/EEC, the European Commission launched in 1992 the work programme on the Community-wide review process for all active ingredients used in plant protection products within the European Union. In this review process, each substance had to be evaluated as to whether it could be used safely regarding human health (operators, bystanders, consumers) and the environment (in particular groundwater and non target organisms, such as bees).

Beekeeping and honey production - Residues in honey


Honey is defined in Council Directive 2001/110/EC. EU Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) in honey are listed in Regulation (EU) No 37/2010 for residues of pharmacologically active substances in honey (e.g. tau-fluvalinate and amitraz) and in Regulation (EC) No 396/2005 for residues of pesticides.

Bee health


The EU bee population plays an important role in both pollination and the production of honey and other apiculture products within the Community. The EU has therefore laid down specific community rules to protect and maintain the health status of bees within the EU.

Beekeeping, honey production and wild bees

selle info aadress:

It is estimated that pollinators contribute at least 22 billion Euros each year to European agriculture, with 84% of crops needing insect pollination, and more than 80% of wild flowers require pollinators to reproduce. However, throughout Europe there a severe decline in the numbers of wild bees and other pollinators and managed honeybees have been reported, and this trend is expected to continue.

Otsin mentorit

Tahan ka saada mesinikuks! Olen oma peas seda mõtet küpsetanud juba 2 aastat, ning valmis nüüd mõtetelt üle minema tegudele. Kuna aga puuduvad igasugused teadmised, siis otsingi siin nüüd üht tegusat õpetajat kellel oleks aega ning kes oleks nõus jagama teadmisi ja kogemusi. Parim õpetaja valik oleks vast keegi kes elaks samas piirkonnas minuga Lääne-Virumaal Väike-Maarja vallas, Avispea, Uniküla või 53345821 või lea.loddis@hotmail.com
