WATCH | Rehoming native bee colonies at UQ

22 January 2020

UQ is a hive of activity – even when students aren’t on campus.

Stingless native bees pollinate many native plants across the St Lucia campus, and large hives can be found in urban cavities, such as in sides of buildings, valve pits and water meters.

UQ’s Property and Facilities division have teamed up with UQ's School of Biological Sciences to rehome native bees in educational display hives to be used for teaching and research purposes.

Watch the video now to see how UQ’s native bees are safely rehomed on campus.
