Yellow Box honey harvest

Alf Brugman Beekeeping Blog

We have just harvested Yellow Box (Eucalyptus melliodora) honey from our beehives in the Northern Country of Victoria. The hives are in excellent condition with large populations of bees and the Red Stringybark has just started flowering which should result in good pollen for brood rearing and the possibility of a good quality honey. We are hoping that the hives will stay strong for the Grey Box( Eucalyptus microcarpa) flowering from the end of February into autumn.Grey Box is usually the biggest honey harvest of the year and is relied on by most beekeepers.
