Hi everyone. Does anyone know where I can go to source an Australian Native Bee hive? I am very interested in getting some bees. Thinking mainly about pollination, not so much about the honey, although a bit of honey from time to time would be nice.


Any advice greatfully received.

oh come on everyone, please.....Graeme also needs an answer because the cultivated European bees are disappearing, and my garden needs the interaction.

Hey Guys

I just found these:
http://www.nativebees.com.au/Contact-Us
http://www.aussiebee.com.au/buy-stingless-bees.html
The second one, has a list of contacts for QLD and NSW. There is also some details about Native Bees outside of these areas - it appears that their native range does not really go much beyond NSW and QLD. Seems a little strange, perhaps the species in the other states are more solitary or less able to be kept in hives??
