A natural home for native stingless bees

Posted on Updated on

We’ve had native stingless bees for several years now, and they live very happily in their small home, complete with a tin roof.

When we visited Sydney’s botanic gardens a few weekends ago, we were very impressed with their super-natural home for bees:

I’m reliably told that the hive on the right is currently empty, awaiting an enthusiastic swarm from the active hive to populate it. Which only leaves the question: how did they get the bees into the first hive?

I’d love to have this sort of log home for our native bees, so I’ll ask around to find out more…
