    Default New Zealand beekeepers tutu warning

    No, not ballerinas in short skirts. A news article says that the current New Zealand drought has increased the risk of honey poisoning through bees foraging on the poisonous tutu plant. Apparently 22 people got sick from it back in 2008. The article encourages beekeepers to avoid eating untested honey and/or comb harvested after 1st January.

    No, I'm pretty sure that's not me. I'm from Australia, travel about in a caravan with my husband and two dogs, and design software for beekeepers.
