Busy Bees Beekeeping on Business Balconies, Backyards and Basically Everywhere is a program created and facilitated by Thrill environmental team builders. We especially enjoy teams building for The Blue Banded Bee an incredibee, an Australian native and stingless to boot. All humour beesides here’s the details!!
We are all about ensuring our wonderful pollinators, especially native Australian Bees have a home and habitat to pollinate. Even in our most crowded city spaces and industrial areas.
The program starts with an insect search in your immediate vicinity. Learning more about the fascinating lives of insects and bees. We review which bees are ideal for your business or backyard space. How to collect honey from homey bees and living a sustainable lifestyle that will increase the quality of life.
Thrill will bring in a real hive to demonstrate it’s qualities and then have your teams building their own hives and growing plants to help provide suitable habitats and foods for the bees.

Here’s a scientists word that we should all heed. “Pollinator decline is already having an impact on our food security. We need to take action at a local and national level. We all rely on pollinators for one in three bites of food. Quality food and plenty of housing are essential for thriving pollinator populations”.
Excerpt and further insight from Melissa Ballantyne of Sydney Stingless Bees “Keeping stingless bees is easy and you don’t need to be an expert! The native bee is stingless as well as family friendly which makes this bee a very popular addition to the backyard. Most keepers of the native bee do not keep the bees for honey but rather for the conservation of this little bee whose population is declining because of human development”. “Native bees are virtually maintenance free and are busy pollinating your backyard or vege patch darting back and forth to their hive with bright coloured pollen”. “Native bees are not affected by the many diseases or mites which are wiping out the European hives. The varroa mite is the latest pest damaging European bee populations”.
