As a horticultural area, honey bees are very important in the Mildura region, particularly for the pollination of almond and
melon crops.While the region does produce some honey and bees wax, pollination is an industry in itself.In order to pollinate the region’s vast almond plantations,
between 110,000 hives are brought into the region from many
of the Eastern States in order to meet the huge demand that pollination created.
Bee keepers in the Mildura region also service other regions including South Australia.
