Bee Hive Removal & Rescue Melbourne – Raw Local Honey for Hay Fever Melbourne.

20171106_151734(1)

In many cultures across the planet bees were considered sacred just a couple of generations ago, bees wax and honey was used in countless medicines and even collected by governments as taxes.

While bees have been on earth longer than dinosaurs and humans, there are practices and diseases that threaten bees to the degree that bee sanctuaries are being created and 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.

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, large, small or 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 around 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 and experimenting with manuka lollies! During the quieter winter hibernation time Frankie aims to continue his book…..‘The Queen of Bees’.
