    Somerset Bee Research

    In memory of Neil Trood, we would be grateful for donations towards the bee research project into European Foulbrood (EFB) initiated by Somerset Beekeeping Association.

    EFB is a bacterial disease that kills the honey bee larvae. A particular strain of this disease is only found in Somerset and North Dorset where beekeepers are finding many cases year upon year with the recommended precautions showing no evidence of reducing the number of cases.

    Neil kept honey bees since 1978 and has been a mainstay in the running of Somerset Beekeepers Association- having been a past president- and organising the County Honey Show for very many years.

    He always encouraged beginners and was very keen to promote the importance of honey bees as pollinators. The survival of bees was very close to his heart and it would have been important to him that his memory is playing an important role in the future of the honey bee, particularly in the county where he was born and bred.

      Neil was a great friend of mine, particularly at school and in our teenage years and early twenties and periodically through life. We sang "Happy Birthday" to him over the phone on his last birthday.
