Hampshire Beehives Stolen – Broxhead Common
Communique from Petersfield Beekeepers Association
Unfortunately, more honeybee colonies have been stolen.
What saddens me, even more, is that it is most likely beekeepers who are responsible, given it requires a level of expertise to move beehives.
Petersfield Bee Keepers Association (PBKA), one of its members has had 4 hives and beekeeping equipment stolen from Broxhead Common Hampshire UK. One of the hives had a full colony of honey bees in them!
