Native Stingless Bees Expo February 2016 in Grafton NSW

The following block of photos are a montage of the workshops Clarence Native Bees held between March 2016 and February 2017 for the construction of native bee boxes. Thanks to Bunnings and all the people involved. You know who you are!

The boxes were made in anticipation of receipt of stingless bee nests needing to be rehoused during the clearing of habitat during the highway upgrade that was about to commence. Due to the efforts of all concerned, and some in particular, many stingless bee nests are now alive that otherwise would have been destroyed. Unfortunately many nests didn’t survive the trauma but protocols were established with the highway construction contractors that gave the Clarence Native Bees group a workable process to collect the hives that were found. We thank the dedicated highway upgrade staff involved in identifying the nests and organizing the nest removal from restricted work areas.
