Geoff Scott, president of the Southland Bee Association, explained the importance of planting pollen grains for a little honey, and the right plants gave the bees a “morning-bick.”
Pollen plants are excellent at this time, enabling bees to build numbers.
He said that many people thought that weeds were good for this.
An example of beekeeping is Invercargill’s Folster Gardens, where the community established a new beehive last year.
“Every month of the year, there is something for the bees,” he said.
Trevor and Lynn Haggins have owned the property for the past 15 years, but when the new apiary was established, they explained how it had grown recently.
“Until the garden is gone,” says Mr. Higgins, “these critics are changing.”
According to Mr. Scott, apiculture is a national body representing New Zealand beekeepers and honey producers.
“One of the best things beekeepers can do is to grow bees, wildflowers or shrubs in their gardens or public places,” said chief executive Karin Cos.
This provides essential nutrients for our prophet to ensure that they are able to cope with the many challenges they face.
When choosing what to plant, Cos recommends that people visit the New Zealand Tree for Bee Research.
Some of the best bees are citrus and pep fruit trees, or native plants such as Harakeke or Rerewa.
He said the bees are excellent, sustainable sources of nutrition and well-fed bees are better able to cope with threats such as varicose veins, deforestation, climate change and diseases.
