“When our beekeeper gets tired he brings his bees over. And he talks about what he is going to do,” said another.
The publicity stunt has been labelled a publicity stunt by many beeskeeper supporters but Dr Peter Brace, managing director at Victoria University’s Insect Research Centre in Tuggeranong, said there had been no major concerns about the health of bees in the district, which he said had “good” urban health conditions.
“I think you could see it would help in promoting and keeping bees because the beekeepers are going to feel better,” Dr Brace said.
Dr Peter Hallett from the University of South Australia’s Department of Entomology said the event was just the latest bee tourism opportunity that was also boosting local beekeepers.
