Free Casual Beekeeper Support
Don't know how to do a full brood inspection ? Need help with splits ?
Checking for American Foulbrood disease, doing sugar shakes or even opening your Flow Hive for the first time in years can be a daunting experience for some beekeepers. We can help make this a lot easier for you as well as provide you with updates for your skills and knowledge so you have more confidence to do it yourself. Remember, the recent introduction of the Bee Biosecurity Code of Practice in NSW and Victoria places important obligations on all beekeepers to ensure that they regularly inspect their hives for disease.
Want to learn about bees.... Not quite sure how to start ? Maybe you want to do an advanced topic ?
We can provide one-on-one or small group beekeeping sessions to make sure you know the basics, understand your obligations under the Bee Biosecurity Code Of Practice as well as cover more advanced topics such as hive splits or queen breeding. We walk you through the critical elements that will help you care for your colonies. We'll even leave you contact details so you can call us direct to discuss the advice we give you.
