Bees are a winged flying insect that are closely related to wasps and ants. Bees provide a vital role in the pollination of plants and as such are important for crop production. The Bee colony works together with all members of the hive having a specialist task for the overall aim of the colony to produce honey, honeycomb and beeswax and of course reproduction. Honey and Honeycomb are enjoyed by humans as a food source and beeswax is used in candle making.

The Scientific name for bees is Anthophila of the Order Hymenoptera and Class Insecta. Their higher classification is Apoidea.

 

Native Bees Australia

Native Bees

Native Bees are very different in appearance to the “honey bee” we know from our school days. The native bee to Australia is a very small black flying insect that can look like a fly.. They are very small and mostly black in appearance.. Although native bees don’t produce as much honey as the introduced species they are still a vital part of the ecosystem and worth saving.

If you think you may have a problem with native bees give us a call and one of our trained professionals will attend your property to assess.
