Orkney Islands, Beekeepers from the extreme

Karen Scott from the Centre of Rural Economy of the University of Newcastle give a interview on her work in Orkney.
In Orkney islands, beekeeping is alway extreme due to the climate. Without trees, covered by moors and subject to violent winds, the bees have been introduce here by men and can not survive without them. Varroa free, sanctuary of the european Apis Mellofera mellifera, commonly called black been, the Orkney Islands are today a reference in England. The Orkney Beekeepers Association try to protect the islands from the introduction of varroa mite and from the importation of hybrids bees.
