The Australasian Beekeeper – December 2020 – Vol. 122, No. 6

$10.00

Published December 2020

With the end of 2020 on our doorstop, The ABK looks into record keeping and the 20 tips from Rod Bourke from the NSW Department of Primary Industries and we also have ‘The Plan Bee’ to deliver A+ tech for the national genetic improvement program underway to give our industries superior honey bee performance.

In this month’s ‘In the Apiary’, it details a story on the life of bees and how the amount of food fed to a larval bee then determines whether the bee is going to bee skinny or fat, which affects its whole life.

In our technical section, Randy Oliver gives us the 2nd part of his experiment into improving pollen substitute for our bees, andDr. Stefan Stangaciu answers questions on Apitherapy around the topic of the health benefits in the second instalment of ‘Are beekeepers protected from pathogens. Arthur Garske gives information for new Bee Keepers on what do in Summer, around hive management and in recent research we learn how plant droiplets serve as a nutrient-rich food for insects.

Graham Kingham asks the question ‘Do Bees Sleep?’, or are they simply just resting, in his intriguing article; and Mary Montaut talks all things Propolis, whether you hate it or like it, Propolis is a sticky subject while Clarence Collison informs us about bee gut microbials and while honey bees support a diverse microbial community – the impacts of their associated microbes on honey bee health remain unresolved.

Don’t miss our regular catch up on the news in the bee world, including the link for the National Stringless bee survey.
