Are there any experienced members that can come to my house to advise if I have a suitable location for a hive? I live in central Lower Hutt.

Understanding Tutin and the Risks

Please see attached document from MPI regarding Tutin and the risks to honey.  Whilst tutin is not a major risk to honey in the Wellington area, it is the responsibility of all beekeepers to be aware of the danger of tutin-infected honey.

All beekeepers are advised to follow the tutin standards, even if they do not intend to sell their honey.

All about bee swarms

Bee Swarms are the natural way that bee colonies multiply to increase their numbers. In the world of bees, an individual is not the important entity, as most bees cannot reproduce. The important unit is the colony, which contains a queen (or occasionally multiple queens) responsible for laying eggs which the colony as a whole hatches and raises.  It is therefore important for the survival of bees, that colonies "reproduce", which is done by the bees splitting into two groups, one of which stay in the hive, and the other departs to find a new hive.

No polls have been added to this group.
