New Tutin Honey Standard

sysman's picture

The standard, which applies to bee-keepers, packers and exporters, sets a maximum level of tutin in honey sold for human consumption. The maximum level of tutin in extracted honey is 2 milligrams per kilogram and the maximum level of tutin in comb honey is 0.1 milligrams per kilogram. Comb honey is potentially more risky than liquid or creamed honey because any toxin present may be concentrated in small parts of the comb.

BEES and WASPS

sysman's picture

DEALING WITH BEES and WASPS
Honey bees live above the ground in a hollow tree or a hole in a building - e.g. an old pipe hole will give bees egress to the inside wall cavity of a house.
Bumble bees can live anywhere where they are sheltered and dry. Generally they often take over an abandoned mouse nest - under ground, in a compost heap, under a building and in the insulation of a building’s wall or ceiling.
Wasps generally build a nest in the ground - a bank where a root has rotted away creating a small cavity which they enlarge but they will also build nests in a wood pile, a roll of carpet, or in the roof cavity of a building. The nest is oval in shape and made from rotten wood chewed to form a papier mache structure.
