Cornish Beekeeper Rodger Dewhurts has taken it upon himself to save the British honeybees from the varroa mite, by breeding varroa tolerant bees.

Dewhurts has been tirelessly breeding into his bees for 18 years qualities that will allow the bees to manage the varroa mite more effectively. Read Dewhurts story.
