Code of Practice and National Bee Biosecurity Program
For the past 3 years, the Australian Honey Bee Industry Council (AHBIC) and Plant Health Australia (PHA) have been working to implement effective biosecurity arrangements for beekeepers around Australia. Ensuring the honey bee industry has the capacity to better manage established pests, and to have surveillance in place for early detection of exotic pests such as Varroa mite is critical to the future sustainability and viability of the Australian honey bee and pollination industry.
