Are Uk Honeybees Protected?
Anyone treating bees can get prosecuted and could get finned up to £25,000 for treating a bee colony and honeycomb. There is a lot of confusion about how to deal with bees in the Uk. Often its misunderstood that the bees are protected, when its not the bees themselves but the honeycomb they live on. This is because honeycomb gets into the human food chain when its illegally treated.
