Shane,I have two hives at present, a Trigona carbonaria. and Austroplebeia australis. I'm getting a couple of Trigona hockingsi hives for Christmas.Lost two caronaria hives over the last two years, not sure why though.
Welcome Tony,Another Northern Brisbane beekeeper here.... actually only just down the road from you, at Narangba. SE QLD is a good spot for raising bees, but you do need to keep up with our SHB traps. The high humidity really lets them go crazy if they get a foothold in your hives. I lost one hive a month ago in only 8 days! Enjoy the bees!
I'm just up the road from the both of you. Getting a small community going around these parts tongue
