What is Total Activity?
What is Total Activity?
Total Activity (TA) is the measurement of the honey's antimicrobial quality or its antimicrobial strength in killing bacteria. Any honey with a TA rating higher than 10+ has beneficial antimicrobial properties. The larger the TA number, the stronger the antimicrobial effect level of the honey.
We get our honey tested for its Total Activity by the NATA registered Chem Centre of Western Australia, Intertek, and Analytica Laboratories.
Very good service.
Well accepted must order some.
Excellent service , great communications queens arrived on time and in good condition . The Bee hives are now easy to handle . No hesitation in buying my queens from Honey for Life . In fact will be a yearly purchase from now on Darryl Leeming
I was impressed with the detail of certificates and time spend on this. Not many suppliers are spending the time on such an important thing in the industry. Bee arrived in perfect health. Only one thing i would suggest, is to tape the queen cages down to the box or a card as they were bouncing around in the box when they arrived. i will be getting more from you guys. just waiting to see how they go as queens.
Experience was second to none. From initial contact to delivery and after all queries and timelines were answered promptly and queens delivered with 3 days from WA to Brisbane Qld. All queens were healthy and in placing in the nucs accepted without delay with larvae evident within a week. Since delivery nucs have been placed into full depth 10 frame hive. I would not hesitate to prefer again or recommend Honey for Life as a supplier.
Great experience. Bees arrived safe and in short time frame
Queen Bee arrived safely from WA to VIC
Except for a delay in shipment due to paper work and approval by Dept of Agriculture the experience was very satisfactory. The queen is in her new hive and we will inspect it next week to see if she is laying.
