Small Hive Beetle

HiveBeetleThe Small Hive Beetle (Aethina tumida) was first discovered in Australia in 2002, and is now common in the Eastern States. Originally from South Africa they spread to Florida in the USA in 1998 where they caused major damage to the Apiary industry. The climate in Eastern Australia is similar to Florida, hence we have experienced similar damage by this pest.

How to recognize them:

The Adult Small Hive Beetle is aprox 6mm long and 3mm wide and vary from dark brown to almost black. Their larvae are white and grow to about 10 mm in length.

Beeswax Wanted

We manufacture and sell our own beeswax foundation. The beeswax is purchased from the beekeepers in block form. The beeswax is then melted, cleaned and processed known as the weed process. This allows the beeswax foundation to stay pure and flexible. Easy for the beekeeper to work with, and a natural form for the bees.

Our beeswax foundation is pure. No chemicals are used in the process, therefore colour in the foundation can differ slightly, as it is governed by the colour of the beeswax purchased from the beekeeper.

 

We offer several options to the beekeeper to consider when offering their beeswax to us.

Please contact us to discuss the options, then you can decide which way works best for you.

We also carry a range of Block Beeswax ,Ribbon Beeswax, Beeswax Fingers, Candle  Moulds and Wicking.

See Catalogue - Beeswax / Foundation  for pricing.
