Honey Harvesting from Native Bees


#1

Has anyone one been able to harvest small quantities (even miniscule quantities) of Honey from any Native Bee Species, here in Canberra? If you have, which species were they? Also, what sort of Hive did you use? Anyone tried the Hive Haven Hives at all? Also, where would I be able to obtain a starter group of bees, or would it have to be hit and miss to try and lure them into a hive?
I am considering trying to set-up a hive or two, in order to study them firsthand and try and produce a little honey and will appreciate any advice and suggestions.
Kind regards,
Anton
