Wild Days Episode 03
In episode 03 of Wild Days we talk about all things bees! We team up with Melbourne City Rooftop Honey and inspect some of their hives in a apiary site with a twist.. The site we visited was located on the rooftop of The Emporium shopping centre in Melbourne city. We open some hives with owners Vanessa and Matt and talk about urban beekeeping vs rural beekeeping. We also talk about the use of pesticides making modern day farming easier, but killing off our pollinators at the same time. The biggest threat to bees is humans, but will we change our ways to ensure we have a future for bees and food? Michael then heads back to Ballarat from Melbourne to check on some beehives he moved from his house were the conditions were not that great, into a semi urban environment, and discovers they still need a little help to get to be a strong colony before winter. Zookeeper Zali helps open some hives and we teach her what brood is.
