DON'T MISS THIS ONE!
SUNDAY 23RD AUGUST 11AM.
Bob Luttrell (Bob the Bee Man) is coming along to split my Tetragonula carbonaria stingless native bee hive.
There is the added bonus of tasting some of the honey harvest from Bob's experimental honey supers.
I'm not as au fait of the language of beekeeping as Bob, so will let him explain in his own words what will be happening:
It would be good to do your division and conversion, plus honey collection for the group (BLF). Sounds like a great idea, I am more than happy to do the split and supply the box. I can convert the box to separators.
I would plan to do the split, and the conversion to separators of your box. Normally one would not do the honey harvest at the same time, but this is so minimal impact that I believe it will not affect the bees.
I will leave one colony so it can be viewed through the panel, to the brood growing upwards, though at the current temperatures, they are likely to close off for a bit.
I will do some Brazilian additions to encourage that upwards growth, a bit of honeybee foundation.
Children welcome but must be supervised by parents at all times.
RSVP required for the address to be sent closer to the date to the email address you nominated when you joined.
Late attendees welcome. Message Lissa or phone on the day for the address.
