The Australasian Beekeeper – September 2020 – Vol. 122, No. 3

$10.00

Welcome to the September edition of The Australasian Beekeeper, as we welcome Spring across Australia and the southern hemisphere. This month, we welcome Randy Oliver’s perspective into pesticides in the news and what that means for us beekeeping folk. Whilst still on pesticides, ‘In the Apiary’ look at Fipromol, that has been blamed for the death of 10 million bees in NSW. Graham Kingsman looks into the mandibles of the bee, and finds out that they are made for many things.

Frank Derwant & Alan Wade have teamed up again to educate us on “Bee Space”, as it is one of the fundamental tenets of beekeeping. As we have just put Winter in Australia to bed, Zachary Lomas asks us to be reflective and look at reassessing our goals for our apiary for the new season, and we also take a look into the origins of flowing plants and pollinators. This month, Mary Montaut delves into the story of Honey Pots & Sugar Bags, where she investigates bumble bees and sugar ants honey producing capabilities.

Clarence Collinson looks into flower constancy and why honey bee workers only tend to visit one type of flower during a foraging trip. In Recent Research, the School of Agiculture from the University of Adelaide release there report in conjunction with AgriFutures on Fungicides and Bees in Canola, as bees carry these back to the hive for later consumption. Don’t miss our regular catch up on the news in the bee world, items for sale in the classifieds section and the ABK gift shop, as well as positions vacant, and you connect with other beekeepers via our associations page, this month we feature Part 1.
