Today the QBA team have continued to progress on a number of key priorities to support the national eradication efforts and ensure our Queensland sector is well prepared for any possible outcomes.
Please see below a link to watch the press conference held earlier today, providing an update on operations on the ground to respond and eradicate varroa destructor after it was detected in the Port of Newcastle 1 week ago today.

We have worked through out the day today to upgrade our members site to launch a new portal for information relating to the response efforts to support in the eradication of the mite. We are optimistic that the site will go live sometime tomorrow and will serve our members and greater industry as a reliable source of up to date and factual information.
Our team are continuing their efforts to support the response efforts, containment and eradication of varroa. We ask that you continue to assist us in the distribution of information to our beekeeping colleagues and greater industry.
