Apis cerana & Varroa Jacobsoni in Townsville – Update No. 10

Download PDF

I would advise that a sixth detection of Asian bees (Apis cerana) has been found in Townsville in a compost bin. As there were no Varroa jacobsoni found in the nest it becomes 6POR (Premise of Relevance). It was found in the same area of Hyde Park that 4POR and 5POR were found.

There are still foraging Asian bees being found in the same area and beelining continues to locate these nests.
