Welcome to Kin Kin Native Bees

Hello and welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in native bees. 

Kin Kin Native Bees are producers of hives of two species of native stingless bees, Tetragonula carbonaria and Tetragonula hockingsi. These hives are available for rental to commercial orchardists and for sale to the general public when available. Availability of hives is generally seasonal.


We currently have a waiting list of people interested in a hive. Please check back periodically to see when hives are available.






Native bee rescue, contract pollination, sales of hives and empty boxes. Information on keeping your own hive. We now also give educational talks to school groups and also sell nesting blocks for solitary bees as well as provide information on how to make your own.
