We have two beehives and these have proven to be an interesting activity.
Our members strip the hives approximately every 2-3 months and about 30kg of honey is produced. The honey is packaged and sold to members and the public.
We have two sets of protective equipment but any member who is allergic to bee stings should not participate near the bee hives and they should carry any necessary antidote in case of a sting.
The Gold Coast Amateur Beekeeping Society was instrumental in helping us start up our own bee hives and they are always available to assist us if needed.
