Beekeeper speaks at Rotary

Ms Barbara Elkins from the Central Coast Amateur Bee Keepers' Association was the guest speaker at the Umina Beach Rotary Club recently.

Ms Elkin's presentation covered European and native bees.

She displayed the different types of hives and pulled them apart to explain the panels and working parts.

"The average hive has about six to eight frames and can produce 60 to 100kg of honey each year," Ms Elkins said.

"Bees are very clever and the female foragers can find the best nectar and pollen," she said.

Ms Elkins advised Rotary members that, if stung by a bee, they should flick the bee off or scrape it off with a credit card because squeezing the bee would result in the venom being forced into the wound.

She said the Bee Keepers' Association met on the third Wednesday of every month at the Gosford Showground.
