Breeding Queen Bees after the 2019-2020 Fires
Due to bee, hive & flora losses during the 2019-2020 fires, this is one of three projects delayed until further notice.
Once we are back in production, you will be the first to know via this page.
Until then, this page serves as information about Kangaroo Island Bees:
The Ligurian bees on Kangaroo Island are believed to be the last remaining pure stock of this bee found anywhere in the world.
Kangaroo Island was declared a "Bee Sanctuary" in 1885.
In the early 1880's Ligurian bees were imported by the South Australian Chamber of Manufacturers.
Ligurian Queen Bees:
The pristine environment & disease-free status is of increasing importance queen bee breeding and Island honey.
The breeding of queen bees is expanding as the pure Ligurian bee produces highly valued industrious honey, pollen & propolis collection.
