Australian Native Stingless bees make a home wherever they find a suitable nesting site. Yandina Community Garden’s Native Stingless Bees are no exception and have done just that. Spend a morning with Mel Marx exploring and understanding how you can be rescuing and re-homing Native Stingless bees, what you should be looking for when rehoming them and how to care for them going forward. We will be rehoming the Native Stingless bees that call a polystyrene box their home in the nursery.
Mel Marx is an avid Native Stingless beekeeper and works with Bob Luttrell to rescue and rehome bee colonies in water meter boxes. She lives on a 100-acre property North of Yandina and is currently creating habitat for the bees by planting native plant and tree species on her property. She hopes to get a Native Stingless bee honey industry up and running working with other beekeepers to make this exceptional honey with its incredible medicinal properties available to more people.
