Always fancied getting into beekeeping Bernhard, but the idea has been vetoed! :slightly_smiling_face:
Worrying how few we see now!

Are there any known bee keepers willing to act as mentors in the Alet Les Bains area of the Aude region? Thinking of getting involved.

Hello Peter and welcome to the forum.

Here’s yellow pages

Have you looked at this site - looks useful

Thanks for the info. didn’t realise that there was a Yellow Pages in France.

Will follow up with this and the L’apiculture link.

Many thanks.

Interestingly enough, I was chatting with one of our local beekeepers this morning.

Seems the bees have become “deranged” by the seismic activity Friday morning. This resulted in his normally friendly bees going on the warpath.

The good news is that honey is an excellent treatment for bee-stings !!! :upside_down_face::relaxed:

He assured me that the visible swelling around his eye is only a fraction of how it was before he applied the honey.
