Sharing information & ideas for interested beekeepers in Southern Tasmania.

Sad news from the Northern Territory

A Top End beekeeper says hundreds of thousands of his bees in 120 hives have died after being poisoned with the loss costing him up to $70,000.

The hives were 15 kilometres to the west of Katherine, and were believed to have been sprayed with an insecticide on Sunday or Monday.

Nathan Woods has notified NT Police about the loss of his bees and offered a $5,000 reward for anyone who has information that can lead to a conviction of those responsible. More at http://www.abc.net.au/news/rural/2017-11-30/beehives-deliberately-poisoned-katherine/9208652?sf174911862=1
