从初学者开始

It’s easy to get started but important to learn as much as you can. Check out online resources or connect with a local mentor to kick start your learning.

从菠菜台子 Hive开始

流蜂巢 are a fantastic hive for beginners as they’re easy to use and make harvesting honey so much easier for the beekeeper and so much gentler on the bees.

谁能养蜜蜂??

是的! People keep bees all over the world, even in urban areas. Anywhere that bees can naturally survive, you can become a beekeeper.

多少工作?

养蜜蜂绝对是一件乐事, so maybe work is the wrong word 😉 The amount of time needed will vary at different times of the year – the amount of time required is minimal.

重要提示: It’s easiest to paint or stain your hive before you add your windows and latches.

If you’re short on time, you’ll need your base, brood box, brood frames and roof first. It’s often some weeks before you need to add your 菠菜台子 Super, so leave this for a rainy day.

Experienced beekeeper’s often keep extra brood boxes and brood frames on hand – you’ll be surprised how often they come in handy.

气候保护

It’s important to treat the timber on your hive to give it the best weather protection possible for your climate, especially the roof as it is the first line of defence against the weather.

All Araucaria hives need 2 coats of exterior-grade weatherproof paint to help them endure the elements. Painting your hive is a great opportunity to get creative and really make it your own!


Cedar hives can be oiled to create a lovely natural finish. You’ll need to reapply every 6-12 months depending on your climate, as the sun will fade the finish.

我应该选择哪个菠菜台子 Hive?

所有流蜂巢 include our revolutionary 菠菜台子 Technology which allows for easy honey harvesting straight from the hive. All you need to do is decide which hive model will be perfect for you.

开始你的传粉者花园

Now is the perfect time to create a bee-friendly garden. Not only will your plants thrive with the pollination power of your colony, your bees will also have plenty of resources to keep them happy.

重要提示: Planting a variety of plants which will bloom over the year, ensures your bees have some forage in every season. Plant in bountiful clumps to make foraging easier.

Planting a mix of smaller shrubs and flowering trees provides pollinators a steady supply of food.

Native plants will be more resilient than introduced species, so make sure to include a few species which are endemic to your region.
