WELCOME TO BEEKEEPING SERBIA

With this video, our intention is to get to know you better, by making new friends that we will maintain by more frequent meetings and gatherings. The idea is to invite you to visit us, to meet our beekeeping potentials, to become familiar with Serbia, the country with ideal conditions for the development of beekeeping, with unpolluted nature, with immense meadows full of honey plants.

North Shropshire Beekeepers' Association

For those members who are keen to learn more we have informal tutor groups and encourage correspondence courses for the BBKA modular exams. We also run courses from time to time on particular aspects of beekeeping such as Queen Rearing, Food Hygiene, and Microscopy courses which enable us to examine the anatomy of the bee and diagnose adult bee diseases.
