Australia may not varroa free for much longer.
Taken from bee mail
AUSTRALIAN authorities are concerned by the discovery of two
swarms of Asian bees in Queensland.
Searches are being carried out to see if the latest colony is linked to
a swarm found in August and if there are others between the two sites.
It is feared the bees could bring varroa and Nosema ceranae to
Australia, which has so far remained free of the pest.
