Canterbury Hub Beekeepers' Day Out - 12th May 2019

Canterbury Hub Beekeepers' Day Out This year the Canterbury Hub held a "Beekeepers' Day Out", held at Lincoln University on Mother's Day. Maggie, Carolyn, Martin and the rest of the team organised a great variety of speakers and trade displays for the mix of Hobby and Commercial beekeepers that attended from all over the South Island. 
We always enjoy catching up with friends that we have met at other beekeeping events as well as meeting new customers and learning from the presentations and the discussions held at the breaks. The food prepared by the Lincoln University chef and his team was delicious too.

Going Live and Thank Yous - 10th May 2019

Going Live and Thank Yous Finally, our website is live. It has been a long, but extremely enjoyable and educational journey, with a few challenges along the way. Several years ago, our journey began with our first meeting with Paul from Turboweb. From those early discussions, Anne-Marie’s outstanding design work has created a bright and timeless website that we are extremely proud of.

Add to that, the team-work of Bob and Stefan, the website developers working behind the scenes and our talented “web angels” Sarah W. and Sarah M. who have been there to answer all my questions, support my ideas and teach me the tools necessary to add all our content. Thank you all for all your support.

As well, our thanks must go to Amelia, our amazing photographer, who has taken and edited the majority of our product photos. Her eye for detail and patience in editing these photos to such a high standard has contributed to our store looking amazing. Thank you also to our models; Hayden who with a little bit of encouragement, left the factory to stand in front of the camera, my daughter Clare, my son Nathan and our gorgeous grandson Alexander who also assisted with modelling the bee suits.

We are privileged to have some very experienced beekeepers including John Berry, Derek Skinner and Frank Lindsay share their knowledge and ideas in the articles we have and we will be continuing to add in the Bees and Beekeeping section on our website.

Our Events section allows us to promote beekeeping related events including Conferences,  Field Days and regular Bee Club meeting days. Tell us about your beekeeping event and we will be happy to promote it on our website.

Long live the queen bee ... but if she doesn't, the colony will prevail - 13th Jul 2018

Long live the queen bee ... but if she doesn't, the colony will prevail

In a honey bee colony, the queen bee rules while her daughter workers do nothing but work. So what happens when the queen dies? Are there worker riots, with the colony dissolving into a chaotic mess?

Surprisingly, no. In a study published in the journal Current Biology on Friday, Marianne Peso and her colleagues showed that while queenless bees do act a little more selfishly, they continue to work together to keep the colony going.
