At the beginning of the year we obtained some native stingless bees for the garden. These little guys have been great, flying around the garden pollinating, without requiring an ounce of attention.
At the beginning of the week, Michael Mobbs kindly invited people to observe the splitting of his hive. This is where one established hive becomes two.
I took the video shown above, and it demonstrates how easy the process is. Gives me confidence when the time comes to split our hive!
