Beekeepers are very busy people. In addition to normal hive management, you now must deal with extra surveillance activities because of the Varroa mite incursion, and the threat of other pests and disease. These legislative and bureaucratic demands can be overwhelming; however, Tocal College has produced a simple way to fulfil these obligations. The answer is the Beekeeping Record Book. Moreover, keeping these completed entries for five years covers your requirements under the Biosecurity Act 2016.

This easy-to-use book is set up so that you can record exactly what is required by legislation in the spaces on 8 sets of pages.
