Just curious, I have done a search here and come up with nothing, does anyone use the Australian stingless native bee? they are very good pollinators but no good for honey production, they only forage up to aprox 150 yd radious from the hive so it easier to control cross pollination, their honey is very sweet however I believe there is a 50% chance of loosing the hive if you rob them and besides you would only get about 2lb of honey, the bees are about the size of a house fly and very user friendly.

I am probably not telling you something that you don't already know but I haven't seen them mentioned here.
