About Bees & Us

Bee Hive Removal & Rescue Melbourne – Raw Local Honey Melbourne.

There’s an incredible level of media attention on the plight of bees in many places around the world. There are practices and diseases which threaten bees…and in some countries bee sanctuaries are being created, while elsewhere you have to hand pollinate your veggies!

Bees perform around 80% of all pollination worldwide. 70 out of the top 100 human food crops—which supply about 90% of the world’s nutrition—are pollinated by bees.

In this day and age its inconceivable that most people will still ring pest control to exterminate them!…especially that the Varroa mite is now in Australia. We remove and rescue bee established hives before they are destroyed by pest controllers across Melbourne, and recycle them into new hives.

Our specialisation is removal and rescue of bees once they have built their bee hive inside your home (floor, wall, ceiling, eaves etc), commercial premises, cubby houses, fallen trees, compost bins and almost anywhere . We are preferred bee removers for Dept of Education, Melbourne, Nillumbik, Darebin and Manningham Councils (parkland in trees, natures strips etc).

We are migratory beekeepers and with utes/trailers/truck follow blossom around parts of Victoria and Heidi Honey Hurstbridge is our ethical Raw Local Honey Melbourne label. Plus we produce Hay Fever and Sinusitis remedy along with bees wax candles and the famous St Andrews Papa’s Chai Tea.

We can help provide you with Bee Hives and Bees, help sort out Beginner issues, train you to Become a Bee Keeper or can come to you with a safe demonstration hive to talk to kids and communities.

We’ve been passionate about bees and have been beekeeping for over 20 years. There are now three generations involved….from our 5 kids helping out in the hives and raw honey extraction, Heidi making manuka lippy, Claudia the queen of Chai, and 86 yo Opa who makes the bees wax candles! During the quieter winter hibernation time Frankie aims to continue a book that is his life’s calling….‘The Queen of Bees’.
