Life of the Edge of the Kill Zone
InformationRoland Stanley InmanTuesday, 12 July 2022 - 8:34am
North Arm Cover is right on the very edge of the mite Red kill zone for European bees. It has since gotten bigger. If your hives are not registered do so as a matter of urgency. By the end of July all hives, both managed and wild, south of NAC will have been put to the sword. I’m currently living in Booral and Castle Inman is wedged between two kill zones and the DPI is expected here in the week of 11 July to inspect those hives.
We were able to harvest 120kg of honey from them and will be shortly renting a commercial kitchen to bottle that honey. Buy your local honey today, it has no shelf life. Honey production in our area has now crashed and will not recover for at least four years.

The kill zone has now extended and several beekeepers in the Cove will lose their beloved hives and will continue to do so for at least three years IF the mite eradication program is successful.
