Bees are an important part of maintaining an eco friendly backyard.
They play a significant roll in pollinating flowering plants and it is estimated that one third of our food supply depends on insect pollination, most of which is accomplished by bees.
You can have sting-less bees, the size of an ant or small fly harmlessly collecting pollen from your vegetable and fruit flowers in your garden. They will also produce small quantities of honey which can be harvested for family consumption.
Many beehives are now being lost to land clearing and pesticides.
You can help reverse the decline and increase the survival of the species while helping your garden.
You do not need a lot of space or time to set up your own Australian native bee hive.
It will be a talking point of your backyard and children are fascinated and love learning about Australian sting-less bees.
