Recognising a Stingless Native Bee Nest
by Les and Anne Dollin, Aussie Bee

Nests of stingless native bees may be found in firewood or fallen trees. If these nests are recognised, they can be rescued and relocated in a garden to provide their new owners with years of enjoyment.

This video shows footage of:
-- the bees themselves;
-- bees coming in and out of an Austroplebeia entrance tunnel;
-- a whole nest of Trigona carbonaria bees inside a log; and
-- the magnificent horizontal spiral brood comb of the Tetragonula carbonaria (previously called Trigona carbonaria) bees.
