  4. Hives have been doing well without any extra ventilation’s for a long time. Bees do know how to regulate the temperature and humidity in each hive. The only time you may need to add a bit of ventilation by lifting up the inner cover up with a match stick or so is in the middle of summer if the hives are in full sun and the wax starts melting inside the hives. That only happens very rarely.

  9. Looks like we may have to join together to get lawyers involved to fight against this at court if not listened to. I wouldn’t mind contributing to that if needed.
  10. Is the other group NZ Beekeeping INC doing anything about it? Beekeeping clubs around the the country can also give submissions to the government, minister etc about why they do not agree to this. Has as anyone looked at what can we do legally to stop this voting from happening in the first place if it’s not the right thing to do.
  11. Levy should be per hive and if caught with unregistered hives there should be a compulsory fine for each hive.
