Here is a list of bee-friendly plants. You may contribute to this post if you know any plants that bees love. The post will be updated regularly with photos.
Thanks for the update. I can open it now. I will share this with beekeepers here in Asia. Thanks for sharing!

Here's an article about another bee specie found here in the Philippines. http://bestfarmtreats.com/blue-banded-bee-philippines/
@BernhardHeuvel, I can't seem to open the link you posted above. Probably it needs special user privilege to view it.
Yes they are different species. My stingless bees here are smaller than houseflies. I have 10 colonies in my backyard.
They do have stingers but are just undeveloped. So they bite to defend their hive instead. Stingless bees are found mostly on tropical countries. They are very different with the honeybees. Check my...

I just can't understand the reason why UPLB is also raising european...
This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for sharing the link! I work mainly with stingless bees and hope to find a lot of information there.
Oh sorry! I wasn't able to read your location. Is it the carbonaria specie? Your carbanoria is very similar to our biroi specie. Actually, I've been using a lot of australian articles about stingless...
Thanks for sharing your story @Kidbeeyoz. I didn't know you have stingless bees in the US! Are these bees native in your place? What species do you have now?
The pollen, you will have to take it out manually. Meaning, you have to scoop each pollen pots before pressing and straining the honeypots. That is just my idea paul, the best way to know is to...
Hi paul! I still didn't get any info about the seminar. I hope it pushes through. I'll text you as soon as I get confirmation.
How many colonies did he bought? maybe it's the tetragonula biroi...
Thanks for the info Marvin! They're still not selling colonies as of this moment.
