The Varroa mite is expected to decimate bee populations when it reaches our shores – something experts say is inevitable. However, with early detection and good hive management, Australia’s honey and pollination industries can continue to prosper.
Regular inspections are a key part of maintaining hive health. Unless identified early Varroa could spread quickly, making it almost impossible to eradicate. It’s therefore vital that all beekeepers are aware of Varroa and its symptoms and immediately report any sightings.
This poster will assist beekeepers to monitor hives and identify varroa mite.
