Black & white awareness leaflet

This leaflet is intended to constructively show why bees are important and also to show how honey hunters can obtain more honey by altering their harvesting methods, and at the same time help improve crop yields. (The Putyokan and Ligwan honeybees are the main pollinators being destroyed by current honey hunting methods.)

This example leaflet is A4 double sided and can be cheaply printed in black & white. The necessary information has been condensed into a single cheaply printed A4 leaflet. Although the print is fairly small it appears quite readable for most people.

All the educational material on this website is offered ‘copyright free’. Providing this simple but critical information for the rural communities is of the utmost and urgent importance, so that there is the greatest opportunity for agriculture and the environment to recover from the damage that is currently taking place.

    nice article . I have two colonies of Tetragunola biroi :-).

      Yes I think that T. biroi and other stingless bees are a very important contribution to pollination. The honeybee pollinators (Putyokan and Ligwan) forage in a large area around their colonies and so are very important crop pollinators. It is so important to try and prevent the further loss of the honeybees and hopefully to try and encourage greater bee populations.
