About Bees And About Us

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

In many cultures across the planet bees were considered sacred just a couple of generations ago, beeswax 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.

Over the last 10 years we’ve removed and rescued hundreds of established bee hives before they are destroyed by pest controllers across Melbourne and Victoria, and relocate them into new hives. You can even keep the hive at your place if you want to become a beekeeper! 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, chimneys and almost anywhere .

We are preferred bee removers for Parks Victoria, Dept of Education, Dept of Defense, MetroTrains, Melbourne, Nillumbik, Darebin and Manningham Councils (parkland in trees, natures strips etc).

We’ve been passionate beekeepers since the mid 1990s, and later became migratory beekeepers following blossom from Yarra Valley to central Victoria including Melbourne suburban hives.

Heidi Honey Hurstbridge is our Raw Local Honey label and we produce a sought after Hay Fever and Honey remedy, (hay fever treatment at home), along with beeswax candles and the famous St Andrews Papa’s Chai Tea.

We can help you sort out Beginner issues & mentor service, and can come to you with a safe demonstration hive to talk to kids and communities.

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 90 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’.
