  1. It has been an idea discussed between a few local smaller commercial beekeepers... something along the lines of an oldschool co-op.
  2. Has merit. Assuming we are all like minded honest people, could be an avenue to assist (keep an eye out atleast) in the issue that is becoming real in the industry.
  3. That sucks Chris. Tony txtd earlier with the bad news - gutting man!
  4. Is this related to the abandoned trailer of supers a while back?
  5. Are the frames in your honey super drawn or foundation? Either way, move some frames of honey from your brood area into the center of your honey super. This will help encourage the bees up to store there instead.
  6. Maybe commercial breaks could have a sub-forum for the more industry sensitive topics? Private/closed groups? Hiw NZbees policy considers this tho? As a comm employee, hobbyist, and small beekeeping business, there are elements & contributions relevant as well as irrelevant to commercial forum. The forum has members from all walks of life, so on the whole it is encouraged that NZbees transprently welcomes contributions on all manner of topics from the spectrum of members.
  7. Also known as Coral Tree. Varieties from all over the world, of genus Erythrina. Being from Northland, it may be species caffra from Sth Africa. Being from there myself, they were noticed in Northland. Unsure of bee food source, but hopefully this gives direction for your info searching.
  8. Flame tree being white/grey barked with thorns all over, and long dark coloured seed pods? A number occur in Northland?
  9. The Cert of Inspection papers were sent out to registered Bees in July I think. If you were registered you should have received them in the mail. Not sure if downloadable from AFB website, but could try the contact listed under contacts in the morning to confirm your next step? Hope this helps: f you believe you have returned your COI to AsureQuality Limited, or misplaced your COI forms, please respond to this email or call us on 0508 001122 and ask to speak with an Apiary Registrar.
  10. A summer to keep us on our toes maybe... Consistent with the spring.
  11. Another happy to provide initial sample. Possibly long-term too. Urban hives and native bush & pasture hives.
