Varroa Mite Update

Following the detection of Varroa mites in early July another feral Asian Honey bee hive with Varroa mites was detected on 17 June at a property in Annandale, Queensland. The hive had been present for approximately a month and has subsequently been destroyed. The mites detected have been confirmed not to be the Varroa destructor mite and it is unlikely they will not readily move between hosts. For more information, please click here.
