On  Tuesday  20th  April,  Colin  Pavey  (Regional  bee Inspector  for  the  National  bee  Unit,  APHA)  and  Ben Bowen  (our  local  Inspector)  will  be  running  a  bee pest  and  disease  quiz.  It  is  a  fun  bee  disease  and pest  picture  quiz,  suitable  for  all  beekeepers, covering  the  common  diseases  and  conditions  we find  in  the  UK,  with  a  few  oddities  thrown  in  for good measure.  We,  the  audience  will  get  some  identification  time and  then  Ben  and  Colin  will  reveal  what  we  have been  looking  at!  Everyone  will  learn  something  and there  will  be  a  bit  of  fun  along  the  way.  Not  too serious.  We  will  record  and  mark  our  own  answers and  then  Ben  and  Colin  will  put  a  spotlight  on  the beekeeper with the top score. There will be time for questions and answers at the end.
