Secret life of a native bee to be revealed

PASTURE management to control giant rat's tail grass will be discussed at Wednesday's Weed Busters and Land Protection Roadshow at Monto High School.

North Burnett Regional Council invites residents to attend the roadshow, which is being held in conjunction with the grand opening of the Monto State High School bio-control facility.

The days will also feature an update on pasture dieback, and identifying and using bio-control for weed management on your property.

Landowners will learn about the application of flupropanate granules for GRT control, methods and equipment.

The secret lives of native bees will also be revealed.

There will be displays along with lucky door prizes and more.

Morning tea will be provided, and lunch can be purchased on site from Monto State High School.

For further inquiries or to RSVP, contact council's natural resource management team on 1300 696 272 or email council prior to 4pm Monday.
