Care to discuss? I am researching bee keeping right now as I think they could do well on our land. Apparently they can cover up to 4000 to 5000 acres from their hive. I have noticed lots of bee keeping in the general area of where our land is. We would be doing our thing for the environment as well. flower

Hey Tallula Belle,

I love that article. It's enough to get me interested in the idea of beekeeping again. I'd bloody love a colony of bees. It would be a nice activity to do with my boys when they are older.

YES!!!! I sooooooooo want bees. My rainy weather project for winter is to build a top bar beehive and see if I can entice a local swarm to move in using 100% bees wax - ala The Barefoot Beekeeper.

Oooh I got so excited to see some bees in my garden yesterday. I must be doing something right to attract them. They like to buzz around the flowers but I see them mostly on the fruit tree flowers. I would be too scared to be bitten if I was keeping them.

Top Bar beekeeping is quite contraversial here in NZ as we have varroa and AFB, and those against them claim they are difficult to inspect for disease. Having said that, a friend of mine in the bee club has 2 TB hives he built, and isn't using, which he's bringing over here in spring, along with a nuc of bees I believe!! I'm lucky to live in an area with quite a lot of Manuka for the bees, so here's to beekeeping this upcoming year!

My boys go to a wee rural school, and they have 2 beehives there, last year they harvested a decent amount of honey, and are now selling it. Pretty cool... All under the tutelage of a well respected comm beek in the local area Smile

Yay to that, BlueSkyBee.

I might send an email to a local couple that are beekeepers and looking for agistment around Brisbane. Our land down South may appeal to them. flower
