Stingless Beekeeping  

Stingless Beekeeping

My dad was an apiarist in his spare time. Our family had many, many hives of honey producing European bees. As a child we set up hives, raided them for honey and enjoyed having hives on the shed roof, the local farms and in bushland. The only problem was, I was highly allergic to bee stings. That meant I couldn’t have a hive of my own once left home.


Buy JOY! Moving to Queensland from Victoria meant that a hive of stingless bees was now a possibility. Once I bought my first hive nearly 15 years ago, I was hooked. I learnt as much as is possible about these little workers. The hives (which I split and shared)  increased my yield from the vegie and fruit trees enormously. We now had zucchinis and watermelons, fruit and nuts like never before.

It is with great pleasure that I share with you our experience and knowledge of keeping Aussie Stingless bees.  When you join this amazing workshop on stingless bees you will learn how to identify and support wild hives; how to collect hives that may have found a home in your water metre or tree stump; you’ll learn how to split a hive and keep your own hives. And, of course, you will taste some of this precious and delectable wild honey.

Just in case you wanted to know, I do have hives for sale, but just to those who have enrolled in a course so you know how to care for them and split them yourself.

 

To enrol, get in quick as I have 2 classes and they are usually full. Book by emailing me or call 32063676
