Event description

Description

Are you interested in keeping native stingless bees for fun, honey production, conservation or pollination?

In this workshop, ecologist Dr Tobias Smith will teach you the basics of keeping native bees. This workshop alternates between slide presentations and a practical session to build a strong foundation of knowledge and experience.

You will learn:

  • bee nesting biology,
  • bee foraging biology,
  • diversity of wild bees,
  • importance of bees in natural systems,
  • traditional stingless beekeeping around the world,
  • modern stingless beekeeping in Australia,
  • using stingless bees for pollination of gardens and farms,
  • sugarbag honey and its properties,
  • rescuing bees threatened in the wild,
  • and much more.

In the practical sessions, we will open hives and observe the amazing structures within. We will divide the hive into two halves showing the process of colony propagation and demonstrate sugarbag honey extraction.
