No CCD (colony collapse disorder) in bees in Scotland - I wonder why not?
I've send the info to the U.S. Agricultural Research Service which works with the Apiary Inspectors of America to survey CCD
Peter Peacock (Highlands and Islands) (Lab): To ask the Scottish Executive whether there have been any cases of colony collapse disorder reported with regard to Scotland’s bee population since 1999

Peter Peacock (Highlands and Islands) (Lab): To ask the Scottish Executive whether it considers that colony collapse disorder is a threat to Scotland’s bee population.

However, we cannot be complacent, bee keepers should maintain vigilance for disease symptoms and report any suspicion of disease to Scottish Government bee inspectors.
