Last year, we welcomed some new tenants into our Head Office at Murarrie - a rescue hive of native stingless bees.
"Introducing bees in the garden and I suggested we source a rescue hive.
These are sourced from trees being removed and luckily we work with some Arborists and bee keepers who care about relocating these bees.
Their hives range in size and species vary too. They are such interesting creatures, they help pollinate the flowers in the garden but we are happy the garden can provide refuge and habitat for these little bees to continue their job in the garden.
We are hopeful they will make use of the planted area as well as the local native vegetation corridors around the Spaceframe offices in Murrarie."
-- Ben French (Owner, Yards)
We often receive comments from visitors to our office about how beautiful the lawns and grounds look, in which all credit must be given to the Yards team.
This rescue hive will help support and encourage the eco system around the office, adding to the amazing work that Ben and his team do.
Rescued from a tree stump removed by tree loppers and saved from the chipper, this hive roughly features around 5,000 to 10,000 native 'Tetragonula Carbonaria' bees.
These are a native stingless bee that have colonised a hollowed out tree either through borer holes or stump partially eaten by termites.
