The Animal and Plant Health Agency’s National Bee Unit (NBU) delivers the government’s Healthy Bees Plan – a major component of NBU’s work is surveillance and control of honey bees’ pests and diseases in apiaries across the UK. Mike Brown will discuss the work of the NBU: how it has evolved over the years and how we have harnessed tools such as modern diagnostics and modelling techniques to underpin bee health work and tackle future challenges.
