    Thanks to everyone for coming along to our Christmas Party a couple of weeks ago! While we did get quite a bit of rain, we all stayed nice and dry in the undercover area secured for us by President Brian and Vice President Fred. Special thanks also to Jamie Randall for procuring all of the food for the event. And finally a big thank-you to Bill Robinson for his hard work in building the beautiful top bar hive shown below, which he has generously donated to the club. Look out for it the next time you visit the club hives- we'll be putting some bees in it before long!

    Hi many thanks to the members and their guests that attended the inaugural Social catch-up of the Brisbane Amateur Beekeepers Society Inc. held at The Corner Café Sunnybank

    It was a very pleasant morning. Great coffee lots of good conversation not all about bees with some likeminded people.

    Looking forward to this on the third weekend of every month at various places around Brisbane.

    Any members with ideas on places to go please let us know

    The Varroa mite is only the size of a pin head but it is the most serious threat to the viability of the Australian honey bee industry.  The little bugger is parasitic and feeds on the blood of adult and larval honey bees. It transmits viral and other pathogens, which kill entire bee colonies. Varroa mite is a large part of the problem that has caused honey bee decline in many places around the world. 

    The mite is highly invasive and has colonised the whole world relatively quickly. Varoa originated in north Asia in the 1950s and spread to Europe in the 1970s. It then spread to the USA, Southeast Asia, South America and Africa. In 2000 it turned up in New Zealand. And now, it is in Queensland. 

    This fact sheet was issued by the Queensland bio security office on 21st July 2016:
