How to Grind a Tree Stump https://beekeepclub.com/how-to-grind-a-tree-stump/ https://beekeepclub.com/how-to-grind-a-tree-stump/#respond Tue, 07 Jun 2022 07:45:42 +0000 https://beekeepclub.com/?p=17746 BeeKeepClub

A tree stump is the lower part of a tree’s stem that remains after you cut down a tree, or after a tree falls. Homeowners often prefer tree stump grinding so that they quickly get back to using the space where the fallen or cut tree stood. If left as it is, the tree stump takes many years to decompose. It may also start sending out fresh growth after some time due to the roots of the tree still present in the ground.

Save the Bees: How Climate Change Affects Bees and Other Pollinators https://beekeepclub.com/save-the-bees-how-climate-change-affects-bees-and-other-pollinators/ https://beekeepclub.com/save-the-bees-how-climate-change-affects-bees-and-other-pollinators/#respond Thu, 02 Jun 2022 06:57:30 +0000 https://beekeepclub.com/?p=15076 BeeKeepClub

According to NASA, Earth’s average temperature has risen almost two degrees since 1880. That might not seem like much on paper, but the effects of this seemingly small climate change can be seen in the weather, sea levels, and the health of our global bee populations. In fact, the impact of changing temperatures on both native and introduced pollinators has many experts believing slowing climate change may be the only way to save the bees.

So how can we help slow climate change and its damaging effects? And what else can we do to help save the bees?

Should I install Solar Now in NSW or Wait? https://beekeepclub.com/should-i-install-solar-now-in-nsw-or-wait/ https://beekeepclub.com/should-i-install-solar-now-in-nsw-or-wait/#comments Thu, 02 Jun 2022 00:57:16 +0000 https://beekeepclub.com/?p=18302 BeeKeepClub

Solar power is a popular option for people who want to reduce their carbon footprint and save money on electricity bills. However, with the current New South Wales government plans to increase feed-in tariffs, the decision to install solar panels is a big one. It's not just the initial cost and installation but also the ongoing maintenance and upkeep that comes with it. Before making this decision, you need to know how much energy you use in your home each year and what type of system will work best for your household. If we're talking about installing solar panels now or waiting, there are many factors involved, such as timing (location), current legislation (NSW), and government incentives (PV).

In this article, we'll explore what these changes mean for NSW residents and when you should consider installing solar panels in your home.
