BEEKEEPING QUICK REFERENCE

The beekeeping industry is responsible for the raising of bees and the collection of apiary (bee) products.

There are about 10,000 registered beekeepers in Australia operating approximately 600,000 hives.

By location, NSW is the largest honey producer (39 per cent), followed by South Australia (19 per cent), Victoria (17 per cent), Queensland (14 per cent), Western Australia (7 per cent) and Tasmania (4 per cent). Most commercial honeybee keepers are regionally based.

The prime area for beekeeping and honey production in Australia is a large temperate land stretching from southern Queensland to central Victoria.

NSW is in the heart of this region and has the majority of beekeepers. In 2003 there were 3,575 registered keepers with 256,055 hives. The industry is in its infancy in the Northern Territory with only six registered keepers and fewer than 2,000 hives in 2003.

The prime area for beekeeping and honey production in Australia is a large temperate land stretching from southern Queensland to central Victoria.

Honey is the most common apiary product. Beeswax is the other major product, produced at a fairly constant ratio of 1kg of wax per 60 kg of honey. Queen bees can also be a valuable product for specialised sectors of the industry.

There is a growing market in renting bees for pollination services, especially in South Australia and Victoria where changes in agricultural practice and land management means that there a fewer wild bees to pollinate crops.

Primary activities include:

  • Apiculture (beekeeping)
  • Collecting beeswax
  • Collecting honey
  • Collecting other bee products
  • Collecting royal jelly

There are few professional beekeepers in Australia who depend solely on bees and apiary products for their living. The majority of beekeepers do keep bees for a profit, but supplement their income with some other activity, as earnings are volatile.
