Thread: Stingless Bee Species Management

  1. Default Stingless Bee Species Management

    I stumbled across this information on sciencedaily.com, and thought that it was worth re-posting here for everyone's consumption:

    http://xa.yimg.com/kq/groups/1759854...book%20pdf.pdf (refer to p. 20 for confirmation on the pertinence of stingless bee honey to mead makers)

    The first link is an article, quite brief, that just scratches the surface of the topic of stingless bees (it does contain some useful links). The second link is to a recently completed manual to keeping stingless bees. It appears that they are primarily found in the tropics, in a band around the equator, and function as much as pollinators and honey producers as honeybees. Even if it's not immediately functional for most of us on this forum (I suppose, because of the climate issue), this is still a very interesting topic to me.

    Before European and africanized bees, stingless bees ruled in Nicaraguan woods. Now their honey is very rare and expensive, I haven't seen it for almost 30 years.
