Bees @ Arapiles

First things first.

Get location data for known hives.

Post info to make people aware. VERY IMPORTANT

Imported Corcasion and Italian bee's are TOXIC. Italian's are a bit more aggressive. The consequences can be dia if a hasty retreat is impeaded. Even more so if the victim is allergic. A swarm in a standard Super (Bee box) normally houses around 30,000 bees. Think about that figure.

Bees are more hostile when the weather is changing

The Bees natural ememy. Bears, whom by the way have lots of hair for protection. We don't.

Bees Swarming is when a new queen emerges and decides too head off with a group of followers from the original hive. Thus creating a new hive at another location.

I'm happy if people wan't to e-mail me locations for assessment and recomendation on eradication or removal. Who doesn't like honey on their crumpets. No garantees that a new swarm will not take up residance. Position, position, position.

This a serious undertaking and should be approached in a proffessional manner.

Cheers

Robbie

As was stated in an earlier post on this subject, ALL eradication must go through Parks Victoria.
The relationship we have with the local ranger is Quite good and it would be a shame for everyone if that
relationship was damaged by a lone ranger going after the bees without consulting and working with PV.
You sound like you know a bit about bees so why not contact the local ranger, Peter Hawker, and give
him the benifit of your expertise in this matter.
A list of all known hives is a great idea, I know of 3 sites that are definate hot spots, King Rat Gully, top
of the Watchtower, and middle of Tiger Wall, possibly also next to Agamemnon just at the start of
Collision Course.
I am also available to help with this work!. BP

Hi BP,

This posting isn't meant to be a poll. I mucked up on my reaply to Tim

Thanks for the info on PV's Peter Hawker. I will be taking your advise and contacting himthrough the appropriate channels.

It certainly is not my intention rush in with both guns blasting. I see Bees hives as an issue that will stay with us and neads to be managed. Thanks for your offer to help.

There were some bees at the base of Megalomaniac a few weeks back... I heard that a climber was seriously stung about three weeks ago on Shaggy's Climb - is he/she ok?
