Bee Cosy Winter 2013 losses of only 2%

The BBKA's winter survival survey for winter 2013 showed losses across the UK of 9.6% with figures for the North East where most of our BeeCosy sales have been made of 10.9%.

As in 2012 we surveyed all Bee Cosy users on the same basis as the BBKA survey - i.e. colonies in place at 31 March. Although our sample is not large as the BBKA we achieved a fantastic 98% survival rate from all the 25 beekeepers who responded.
