Anyone been using their Vita swarm lures yet? In southern Europe, I understand swarming season has passed, but further north I suspect the treat is yet to come. Here's some Vita research about swarms that may surprise you.

Australians researchers say they have a genetic test to distinguish Africanized honeybees from Eastern and Western honeybees - to ensure that if they start importing bees to help in the fight against the Varroa mite, that they won't be bringing in 'killer bees'. To date, no Varroa mites have been reported in Australia.

Bees are doing well in the arts these days! "Although, when faced with oversized insects and hooded, white-coated workers, a typical reaction may be fear, Fourtou’s surreal style repurposes these elements for humor and play ..."
Jean-François Fourtou’s 'Merci Louisette' is a nostalgic labyrinth of oversized insects and playful beekeepers.

What do you do when you cannot sting an intruder? The honeybee bite spotted in action. 
Recently Vita's research revealed the secrets of the honeybee bite and this weekend I saw it in action. I spotted a wax moth trail underneath some brood cappings and “released” the wax moth. You can see the wax moth trail that I uncovered in the top right of the photograph.

Last chance to support Sebastian's London Marathon on Sunday in aid of practical projects for rural communities in Uganda. If he has recovered by Monday, we'll tell you how it went. We understand he is not running in a bee costume.

Canadian town reconsiders 'Land of Rape and Honey' slogan. Beekeepers and farmers might understand, but ... Meanwhile the search is on for another slogan for Tisdale.
Tisdale residents asked if it is 'time for a change' after reference to rapeseed crop causes offence

Telegraph warns of Asian Hornet and an interesting view of how they can travel from someone at the Vita stand last weekend's convention: "The Dutch all love caravan holidays in southern France. At the end of their trip, they fold up their awnings – along with anything resting on them – and then air them out (with the potential of releasing all sorts of insects) when they get home." (At present we have heard no reports of the presence of the Asian hornet in the Netherlands.)
Britain's National Bee Unit will hold a crisis meeting after it is revealed millions of deadly hornets could wing their way across the Channel
