June ABK helps us understand When to Open Beehives and brings us Part 1 of the Queen Replacement Enigma. After our recent wet weather, Small hive beetle is a problem with the management of Shb addressed, recovery of hive equipment contaminated by Shb, and feeding supplements to use when Shb is present. Meanwhile preparations are underway for Victoria’s 2021 almond pollination season and Kangaroo Island is in a battle to keep their Ligurian strain of honey bees alive after the recent bushfires. We also follow the possibility of a trans-Tasman Manuka honey summit to resolve the trademark situation. Other topics addressed are colony stress, killer bees, a diet of royal jelly, and how bees communicate with each other in relation to their queen.
