HoneyWorks Philosophy
We have a simple philosophy to provide the community with a clean, pure food source: a variety of delicious mixed-blossom honeys, cut comb and wax products with nothing added or taken away.
We are passionate about beekeeping, love our bees and allow them to do as nature intended.
What We Do

Along with producing raw honey products, HoneyWorks provides a broad range of apiary support services, from hive startup and training, to maintanence, swarm management, and hive relocation.
Our Bees
Our Honey
Safety and Training
HoneyWorks operates primarily with the Apis mellifera ligustica bee  (Italian honey bee),  with two additional hives populated  with the Apis mellifera caucasia bee  (Caucasian honey bee).
We favour the Italian honey bee over the others because of their quiet temperament and their superior honey producing capabilities. We do not manipulate our hives with a view to breed improvement, and trust our bees  to continue with their own innate processes of self-selection for breed robustness, as they have been very successful at this over the past millenia!

Our bees produce what we feel is the best honey in the world, drawn from the gardens and parklands of Geebung and the open forests and farmlands in the Narangba area. Because we do not dictate where and when the bees forage, the honey is multi-flora and subject to the seasonal variences in the broad range of flora found in south east Queensland. Our honey is pure and raw, with no chemical treatments, no additives and no radiation. It's simply spun off,  finely sieved and bottled.

After 30 years as professionals in the international corporate world we recognise and acknowledge the importance of 
Throughout our operations, all care is taken to protect our people and the environment. We are registered beekeepers and members of beekeeping associations. Peter is a member of the National Safety Council of Australia
We welcome all newcomers who are willing to learn and get involved in beekeeping, and offer training, support and advice services..

Hive Maintenance

Honeyworks is fully commited to bio-security and hive hygiene. Hives are checked regularly to assist the bees with keeping their hives clean and disease free. All precautions are taken to minimise disease, predators and parasites.
We have both timber and plastic hive boxes.
We have a good working relationship with fellow beekeepers and meet weekly in several apiaries in the region and assist each other with workloads. 
As with most apiarists we continue with hive research to assist the bees in apiary expansion, honey production and pollination.

New beekeepers are welcome to contact us for advice and assistance with hive maintenence.
Hive and Swarm Removal

Honeyworks is available 24/ 7 to assist with hive removal and swarm management. Unwanted hives and bees are thoughly checked for disease before movement. Relocation is generally welcomed into one of the many apiaries available in the area and fellow beekeepers join forces at times to assist and pass on experience in hive relocation. If there are any signs of disease or infestations in a hive, the hive is destroyed in accordance with existing, industry-accepted bio-security practices.

We encourage people to protect bees and save where possible, but also understand that not all hives or swarms can be recovered and must be destroyed.
Starter Hives and Expansion

Honeyworks apiary expansion is undertaken using two methods. First is the HIVE SPLITTING method where a brood frame is removed from a hive - along with bees - and placed into a nucleus box.  After 24 hours a purchased queen is introduced and the bees take over,  to produce a new hive with the introduced queen.. 
The second method is the SUPERSEDURE procedure where several frames of eggs, brood and bees are removed from a strong hive and placed in the nucleus box. The bees realize that they do not have a queen and proceed to produce their own. 
Of late we have been very successful with the supersedure method, enabling us to provide fellow beekeeper association members and newcomers with nucleus (starter) hives on request.
