Last year was special for beekeepers in the Netherlands: though spring arrived late we experienced a good wintering success, then had a cold spring but happily a rather nice mid- and late summer, and sofar a very mild winter. Also around beekeeping the year was special. There was a lot of dispute about the causes of bee mortalities (not restricted to honeybees), and a broad discussion about what to do to make our bees stronger and healthier. This discussion was strongly enforced by the Dutch under minister for Economic Affairs (including Agriculture) Sharon Dijksma, who tried by elaborate discussions with all stakeholders including concerned citizens to reach consensus and commitment for an ‘Action plan for Bee Health’
