Blue-banded Bee SIG Home Building Workshop  

January 12, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Saturday 12 January 2018 – 12-5 (free club activity) 

Jerrabomberra Wetlands Apiary

Come along to the inaugural Blue-banded Bee Home Construction Workshop on Saturday 12 January 2019! Remember there is nothing like a home away from home.

Please bring at least one of those old agi pipes or Besser bricks clogging up your back yard. More would be better but advise if you are bringing a trailer load. 

We have a few pipes – but not nearly enough – to make a communal nest wall so much beloved of quasi-social Amegilla, the blue banded’s. We have lots of material to make up soft mortar and expert instruction on how to puddle but bring along those brickies tools and skills.  

Simply add water

Drop John Robinson robboandchris@gmail.com or myself alanlynnewade@me.com a line if you’d like to join the fun as knowing who is coming helps sort logistics.  Sadly out Native Bee coordinator Peter Abbott will be away but will be back to inspect our superior handiwork.  Bring a snack but ginger beer supplied.
