Neonics are one worry if they are allowed, which the UK government seems rather keener on than Europe. Another worry is the closer links with China. They use all sorts of things, including antibiotics as a cleaner for hives, which is why a few years ago all blended honeys disappeared from our supermarket shelves; contaminated with antibiotic containing Chinese honey. Lack of control of imports from there, while not certain under leaving the EU, but more likely, could make the UK a dumping ground for what the EU won't take.

We will also need to find money for a bee inspection service, which is just hanging on by a fingernail at the moment. Lack of interest could mean no money for seasonal bee inspectors, which of course is an internal UK government decision, and always has been.
