Honey Bee Health Survey 2018

You may recall that the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) carried out a survey of our industry for the period 2014-15. As a follow up from that survey and to be able to have some data, AHBIC and Plant Health Australia (PHA) agreed that an annual survey would be useful in keeping an eye on the state of our industry.

PHA was successful in being funded by AgriFutures Australia to carry out this survey.

A short survey has been developed to find out how healthy Australian honey bees are, and what pests and diseases might be causing problems for beekeepers. The results from the survey will be used to decide what help beekeepers might need to keep their honey bees healthy. It will also provide statistics for use by the industry.

The Australian Honey Bee Industry Council, Plant Health Australia, and AgriFutures Australia, encourage all Australian beekeepers to take part in this survey, which will only take 10-12 minutes to complete. The survey can be found at http://bit.ly/BeeHealthSurvey

Survey closes December 14th 2018.
