Paul Moriarty has been keeping bees since the 1970's where he was living in Tasmania. Paul would like to express how important it is to demystify the art of bee keeping and would like to encourage more people to keep a couple of hives in their backyards. It is better for many people to have a few hives rather than one man keep a thousand. There are some issues with the small hive beetle and American foulbrood but these are manageable he says. It's the varroa mite that is of real concern but this hasn't come to plague us here in Australia yet. Come and be inspired to keep a couple of hives and learn how to manage them.

It's a wonderful experience it is to have your own honey for all your baking treats as well as knowing you are contributing to the wellbeing of the horticultural industry.
