I think these are stingless bees, in the genus Melipona.  I haven't watched the whole video, but that's amazing!  Ancient Egyptians used to keep bees in clay jars extremely similar to that vessel.  I'm pretty sure the people in the video are speaking Portuguese.

Hi Folks,

This one is in English. Australian, to be specific.

Are these and other native pollinators bothered by varroa in Australia?

Great video.  My mom watches this guy's YouTube channel all the time.  He has lots of great raised bed gardening tips.  :grin:

Like with our native bumble bees, varroa cannot reproduce in non-honey bee colonies, because the brood cycles are different from honey bees, but there is concern that varroa could spread viruses to native bees, since there is nothing to prevent an adult mite varroa mite from jumping to an adult native bee and feeding on it.
