ASM’s 25th IdeaXchange will discuss an interesting topic on stingless bees. These captivating and useful insects are the subject of a new wave of interest in bee keeping. Keeping native stingless bees is a hot topic in Malaysia for commercial environmental and recreational reasons. They are great pollinators and the honey and propolis they produced are believed to have medicinal benefits. This IdeaXchange will provide an excellent opportunity to learn all about the stingless bees’ wonderful, weird and fascinating lives.

We are very fortunate to have two experts in this field to share experiences from different parts of the world namely Australia and Brazil. Their biodata and synopsis of presentation are attached for reference:
