From the publisher
Welcome to the October edition of The Australasian Beekeeper, as the months are warming up across Australia and the flowers are now out in full bloom. In this edition, we have a section dedicated article for new beekeepers - especially with what do in Spring as well as a checklist of 10 items to do 'In The Apiary". We delve into mite counts with Randy Oliver and we also learn the tips and tricks of how to save a failing hive with our editor Des Cannon.
Graham Kingsman looks into the bee under magnification, with his story 'Design for all events', we also have the second part on the Washboarding story with Mary Montaut, which original appeared in May 2020 edition of The ABK. In 'A Closer Look', Clarence Collison looks into foraging and the nutrient uptake of bees and Graham shared his second story with us about the Number 30 and why it is the bees special number
We have a few new research stories to get our minds a buzzing: How honeybee venom rapidly kills aggressive honey bee cells, as well as some information on whether the working bee can infect the Queen with viruses and we look at the problem of the mooching bees. We also discuss the Australian Honey Bee Assistance System as well as trace elements and bees in our Readers Letters.
As always - don't miss our regular catch up on the news in the bee world, items for sale in the classifieds section and our new expanded section in the ABK gift shop, as well as you can connect with other beekeepers via our associations page, this month we feature Part 2.
