Bees Health Section

The Bees Health section has been created to keep the records of all the bee keepers present on the Maltese archipelago territory in order to monitor, by carrying out inspections, the health status of the bees.

During the inspection a visual examination of the hives is done in order to identify eventual health problems due to parasites, bacteria and fungi which can affect the bees’ population. If there is the suspicion of a disease, during the visual inspection, than the Official Veterinarian and/or the Veterinary Support Officer can further investigate using specific immunological tests. Once the pathology is identified and confirmed, all the precautionary and sanitary measures are taken in compliance with the relative legislation. This represents an important step for the protection of the bees’ population.
