This project undertook activities designed to improve biosecurity resources for the honey bee industry and to provide a better understanding of honey bee health in Australia. These activities included the development of an online biosecurity course and an update to the BeeAware website to include information on the Australian Honey Bee Industry Biosecurity Code of Practice and the National Bee Biosecurity Program. This report also describes the results of an annual survey that provides a snapshot of bee health in the Australian honey bee industry, focusing on issues such as pests and diseases, colony loss and pollination services.
