"Wooden" Diary by Frank Lebbell Frost

Beechworth Honey Archive, Beechworth

Hand-written diary containing notes, maps, drawings, charts, tables, some newspaper cuttings and financial information. It contains approximately 72 pages. The original diary was encased in wooden frames.

Historical information

This is the diary of Frank L. Frost; a beekeeper who worked in North-East Victoria. It covers from 1915 to 1924.

Significance

This diary is very significant as it gives details about the methods used by early beekeepers in Australia. As it also contains information such as location and condition of flowering plants preferred by bees in specific locations, this diary is very significant because it can be used to see how those locations have changed over the years.

Queen Bee Cage

Beechworth Honey Archive, Beechworth

Mesh cage stapled onto top and bottom metal bands. One metal strut running between top and bottom. Base is metal, larger than lid. Lid is wooden, with circular hole.

Historical information

The queen bee cage is designed to hold a queen bee, and up to three or four escort worker bees. The design allows for adequate ventilation, and has a spot for 'queen candy' -candied honey- to block one end. The queen is placed in her new hive inside the cage, and once the queen candy has been eaten through -allowing her access to the hive- the hive has become accustomed to her smell and accept her. Bees could be sent through the post in this cage.
