Join us at our next breakfast to hear all about Bees! Stephen Stillman from Eudlo Beekeeping will educate you on the importance of bees in the ecosystem and the food chain as well as outlining some of the many problems they face. He will also discuss the two major beekeeping systems, identifying the characteristics of both systems along with the effects of each system on honey production and pollination. Do you know the size of the Queensland beekeeping industry and the economic value of the industry to the Queensland?
Eudlo Beekeeping is a small family business concentrating on honey production for the local area markets, as well as pollination of fruit tree crops for producers each spring. The beekeeping area covers an area from the Esk State Forest, Mary Valley, Widgee through to the Tiaro area, Gympie and coastal areas from Tewantin to Beerburrum, as well as the local areas of Eudlo, Palmwoods and Woombye. Stephen will also give us a brief outline of the Eudlo Beekeeping management system.
At the breakfast participants will be shown some of the basic components of a beehive and have an opportunity to learn about and discuss the activity within a beehive, queen bee rearing, swarming, and how honey is gathered and stored. Some samples of honeycomb will be made available for sale along with small containers of local honey.
