Growing local

We split our native bee hive about 3 weeks ago, and the bees have been active around both.

I notice a large number of bees not returning to the hive at night, instead clinging to nearby salvia and dianella.

Has anyone experienced this??

It is the males.

Never experienced it with my native hives Gwenneth. I could never tell the drones and the females apart with the SNB's.

Pose the question to Bob Luttrell.

What is local?
The closer the better - but regional and global activities are important too.

Why local?
To reduce food miles, increase food freshness & security, improve social outcomes and reduce the unused outputs of our living environments - like stormwater and green waste.
