Apis cerana and Varroa jacobsoni In Townsville – No. 14

Advice has been received that on 18 October, 2016 a very small cluster of Asian bees was found at Belgian Gardens. This is about 4 kms from the original find at the port and about 400 metres from a previous find in the neighbouring suburb of North Ward.

No varroa mites were found on the bees. This becomes 9POR.

Currently no foraging Asian bees are being seen.
