Norway has one of the healthiest populations of bees in the world. Norwegian beekeepers take the responsibility of keeping it that way very seriously.

There’s no need of medication, but also, it is not allowed. Any medicine or antibiotics are strictly forbidden within beekeeping.

When materials such as beeswax are imported to Norway to be used within beekeeping, it undergoes strict testing. It is not only tested for diseases but also for residue of antibiotics or any other pharmaceuticals. If there’s a positive find on the tests of either diseases or pharmaceuticals, the entire party will be refused at the border.
