Petition Reverse the ban on honeybee imports. Stop the honeybee decline!
Banning imports of honeybees by the government has deprived new beekeepers of a healthy lifestyle, both mentally & physically. Importing bees is a vital part of future beekeeping.
Pest & diseases come in all shapes and sizes. You have the chance to stop the losses and allow imports to continue.
We want the UK parliament to understand the importance of beekeeping, not just for the economy in terms of £££ but also for the wellbeing of the thousands of people that have been tragically affected by the COVID pandemic. This is a real opportunity to at least help the mental and physical recovery of many of those affected. Bee inspired, do something different. Reverse this ridiculous legislation and do your bit to save the bees and the United Kingdom.
