$5.50

Published October 2019

Welcome to the October 2019 edition of The Australasian Beekeeper, as we are already into the second month of Spring, and the weather is definitely warming up, we have a variety of articles which can assist all levels of beekeepers with their bees. In this issue, Des Cannon writes us an in-depth article on getting your apiary ready for Spring. Mary Montaut asks the question – Are drones misunderstood by beekeepers? and Randy Oliver delivers Part 3 of his series on the Nosmea, looking into the seasonality and effects of this disease.

With Varroa constantly on our radar, we have an article on The Varroa mite: its life cycle, behaviour and relationship with bees, as well as a Varroa tour of NZ with the officers of the NSW Department of Primary Industries. We look at Agriculture Victoria’s ‘Operation Almond Pollination” and delve into all things pollen related with an article from Australian Pollinators by Megan Halcroft. Mark Page from NSW Department of Primary Industries discusses The Code and Obligations as a Beekeeper with upcoming legislative changes coming into effect in NSW next year.

Colour deception by flowers is looked at in detail by Australian research graduate Daniela Scaccabarozzi and in Recent Research: we have three articles from the scientific community on an upcoming Australian Bee sting vaccine, the increasing dependence on Pollination and crop diversity and a new way of producing dried honey.

As always, don’t miss our regular catch up on the news in the bee world, things to buy in our classifieds section, upcoming conferences and how to connect with other beekeepers in your area via our associations page, this month we feature Part 2.
