‘Twas the mite before Christmas

December 27, 2016

From: Queensland Government

Minister for State Development and Minister for Natural Resources and Mines, The Honourable Anthony Lynham

Townsville residents are being urged to remain on the lookout for any signs of unusual bee activity over the Christmas holiday period.

Acting Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries Anthony Lynham said the National Varroa Mite Eradication Program was still very active in its search for any more Asian honey bees in the Townsville area.


Varroa mites have the potential to significantly damage the Australian agricultural sector and the bee industry, disrupting honey production and pollination services.
