This RIRDC research focused primarily on an attempt to develop an agent-based model of both managed and wild honeybee colonies and their movements. The purpose of this model was to understand both the spread of honeybee diseases and pests, and the effectiveness of strategies to minimise this spread.
This report will be of interest to scientists, policy makers and government agencies responsible for managing biosecurity.
