What would happen if we had no bees?
Agriculture as we know it
would collapse
A world without apples, mangoes strawberries and pears.
Many animals would become extinct.
Put simply,
it would be a global disaster.
Help us bee the cure.

Our Story

All of us share this issue:  no bees = no life. I want to empower others to know they can make a difference. Products like “Round Up” weed killer and “Confidor” insecticides have been proven to harm bees. Glyphosate – the active ingredient in Round Up – has been banned in several countries for being carcinogenic.  Bees and humanity face a major challenge as massive corporations are determined to feed the world with GMO (genetically modified) Food mono culture farming.

What we Do

Save the Bees Australia has evolved from saving problem bee infestations and re housing bees into a social enterprise. Bees encompass so many issues organic farming , nutrition , pollution , environment , education, wisdom, permaculture and love.  Save the Bees Australia’s aim is to unite like minded people and raise awareness of the importance of bees and the plight that bees face.

Report a bee swarm

Do you have a swarm of bees that are bothering you?  Bees are at their most venerable and friendly when they swarm. Every bee in the hive knows the status of the hive’s health, production, and coherence. When the hive has ample honey and favourable weather conditions the colony will split to reproduce.  Swarming Involves older and wisest bees leaving their established location to scout out a new location. Swarm Patrol puts you in contact with beekeepers who will house and relocate the colony.

A Garden First and I am Absolutely Buzz’n. One of the highest joys of gardening would have to be when we create something and nature takes it as an acceptable opportunity to move in. In this case a cluster of Australian native bees Lipotriches (Austronomia) australica sweat bees gathered on the seed head of a parsley plant that I allowed to go to seed . Umbel seed heads are a valuable piece of architecture that insects see as an air b ‘n’ b so the great challenge is to actually leave plants to live out their full cycle of life and death. This is the first time I have ever had this occur and I am stoked . I thought at the time they were blue banded bees but speaking with Dan from @sydneynativebees and looking at some more images he said they are most likely Lipotriche. They are naturally occurring locals in Sydney. There is nothing like a nature first moment. #savethebees #beethecure

Beekeepers, who were actual fire victims themselves, are raising funds to assist all beekeepers on the east coast of Australia who are also suffering as a consequence of the fires.

It’s been determined the best way to begin is by assisting beekeepers who have lost their hives and apiary sites.

Many of these beekeepers are without phone reception or internet and some are still trying to protect their homes and apiaries.

Shrouded in secrecy millions of insects including indigenous bees will be killed in a mosquito spraying program on the Goldcoast Australia.

Agricultural chemicals like neonicotinoids, glyphosate and fiprinol have devastated insect populations globally. Urban areas have become safe havens for indigenous bees yet their no longer safe while councils and shires fog chemicals without community consent.


Mosquito treatment is scheduled for Pacific Pines, Park Lake, Gaven and Studio Village (Friday).

The process is called fogging. The poison is pyrocide. All insecticides are broad spectrum so they kill all insects including those that kill mosquitoes.

🐝 Bee hive owners - close your hives.
🐶 Dog owners - put out fresh water for your dogs after the fogging.
🐠 Cover outdoor fishponds.
🏠 Perhaps close your windows.

Sad story of a novice beekeeper who transported bees and used to much tape.
Some of the bees suffocated.
When transporting bees never tape up the air vents and a better method is to staple fly wire over the entrance.
Bees need to breath in the same way we do it doesn’t take them long to suffocate.
When moving bees try to chose a cooler days and only lock them up after dark.
Many commercial beekeepers don’t lock bees up at all when they are moving hives at night.

On 10 December 2018 Capilano Honey Limited was officially delisted from the Australian Stock Exchange.

A private equity group specialising in China-focused agricultural exports has taken over Capilano Ltd and turned it into a private company.

Why did the Chinese aligned consortium known as Wattle Hill RHC Fund 1 and ROC Capital Pty Ltd pay $200 million dollars for Capilano and make it a private company after the the 7.30 report / Fairfax media fake honey exposé and the competition watchdog ACCC’s investigation?

Because Capilano Ltd will now make a fortune for its shareholders selling premium Australian honey to China and be free to operate without the ASX monitoring its corporate behaviour.

Capilano Ltd CEO Ben McKee told Fairfax media prior to the take over: "I think the privatised model for a company our size is more suited, than the current listed model. (Privatised) we can take long-term investments in markets and developing markets, rather than having our results analysed every six months.”

It is clear that Wattle Hill's Mr Albert Tse is now calling the shots. The Chinese aligned consortium he heads up now owns Capilano Ltd. This includes apiary sites from Queensland to Western Australia. The company is transforming into a honey marketing vehicle focused on upper middle class Chinese customers who can’t get enough of our pure natural resources.

"We want to create products with a higher margins” Mr Tse said. "Asian and Chinese consumers see this as a wellness product... and are therefore happy to pay a higher price for it.

Ben McKee from Capilano Ltd has assured Chinese consumers that Capilano Ltd will only ever sell Australian honey to the Chinese but has not given a guarantee to Australian consumers that his company will not sell Australians honey blended with foreign honey.

Coles supermarkets have stopped selling imported blends however Woolworths is still selling blends riddled with imported honey.

Despite 180,000 signatures on a petition honey in Australia still is not required to display which country the honey is from.

change.org/honeylabelling

The same consortium that sells premium Australian honey to China blends imported honey with Australian and sells it to Australian consumers using subsidiary brands including Allowrie, and "home brands”.

It is now more important than ever for Australians to buy honey from their local beekeeper direct.

If you don’t already have a local legend supplying you honey use the honeymap to identify one and go and say g’day
