    It's a pdf, not a website. You have to copy/paste it into your address line. Then it will go to it.

    my wife found the web site in some of her 'research efforts'... she got a giggle when I labeled them 'girly bees'.

    Here is more information:
    (there are also several sites for Australian Stingless Bees if you search)

    Note: they Do BITE. Their mouths secrete a caustic substance that causes blistering.
