Research Proposal – EPS Versus Wooden Beehives

We first established our Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) beehives in our beekeeping operation in Australia in the spring of 2012. We started with 100 EPS 10 frame Langstroth beehives which we ran alongside our 160 traditional 10 frame Langstroth wooden beehives. To our surpise, the EPS colonies expanded quickly and by the end of the first season had produced 35% more honey than our wooden beehives.  After more than three years of positive experience with operating EPS beehives in Australia, we are compelled to conduct this research.

Finding honeybees for your first beehive

I have been approached by a number of new beekeepers who have assembled their new beehives over the winter period in anticipation of becoming a beekeeper for the first time this coming spring. They all have the same question which is, how do I get honeybees and a queenbee installed into my new beehive. This is something established beekeepers often take for granted as they have the ability to split off new colonies from their existing beehives.

The Presidents Directive

On June 20, 2014, President Obama issued a directive to federal agencies to create a federal strategy to promote honey bee and other pollinator health.  This is a major step forward in acknowledging the plight of the honeybee and other pollinating insects and their importance to the US economy and food production.  It is estimated that honeybees contribute over $15 billion to the annual value of agiculture crops in the Unitied Stated.

Honey Shortage

A difficult 2014 honey season in Australian has contributed to a shortage of honey in the Australian market. With many beekeepers producing significantly less honey this year, honey prices are rising and supermarket shelves are looking bare. With the 2014 season wrapping up in the next couple of months with a harvest of less then 50% for many, beekeepers are looking to the 2015 season to make up lost ground.
