Document Cert of Inspection - Rakino

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

Are there any DECA holders out there interested in a day out to Rakino Island? We are in the Hauraki gulf, behind Motuhue Is and next to Waiheke and the ferry's are running a couple of times a day for the next few weeks. Please let me know if you are interested or can suggest someone who might be willing and able to pop over and check our 3 hives.

 

all the best

Natalie (newbie)

What do you do for a crust in the real world?

From what I can see Natalie is a beginner beekeeper and it would appear that ferries are rather erratic. 

 

Natalie if I was heading up to Jaffa land, I would come and inspect it for you but I am on the Canterbury Plains!  Though it sounds like a nice outing for a day.

Whoops, probably shouldn't have said Jaffa land.  I now note Christi An is from Gisborne, so I don't know what the parochial Gisborne term is!

gissie.  But how is it pronunciated? Gizbin or Gizbon, asking for a Wellington friend who lives in Eastbourne. :)

so somebody asks somebody else a simple and innocent question and you feel the urge to figure out "parochial" terms for various places?

Hi Natalie - Good on you for trying to solve your inspection issue, asking on the forum.  Best of luck with a solution.

I wouldn't mind going, but as I remember Rakino, very steep - how far from the wharf is the hive - and is it up a Mongolian goat track?

Natalie a very nice lady I know has told me she will do it for you, but she cannot contact you on the forum so has asked me.

 

If you look at my profile you will see my phone number and email, please drop me a message and I will give you her contact details.

Hi Sailabee,

 

Yep - that's Rakino :-) We are lucky our place is about 200m from the  sandy bay wharf -  up a bit of a hill but the hives are on the flat once you get to ours.

R U the only beekeeper on Rakino?   Do you get many issues with high varroa levels?   Looks like a picturesque place to have bees
