Moderated by John Tasker.

Stingless bees, also known as meliponines, native to Australia are pollinators for some of our valuable horticulture; macadamias, mangos, chokos and lychees. Recent technological advancements in are leading to innovations in horticulture, including the use of stingless bees as pollinators, aiming for increased yields and improved sustainability practices.
