Please find attached below, the latest weekly update on the response to varroa (QLD).
Of note, we've added extra content this week by way of the Bee 123 map of surveillance data collected across Queensland since the 13th July 2022 with an explanation as to why industry surveillance data is critical to the national response to the detection of varroa in Australia.

We urge all beekeepers to undertake surveillance checks and report all findings to the Bee 123 portal as soon as physically possible. Members are reminded that if you have completed surveillance however, you've overlooked reporting your activities, the portal will accept backdated surveillance reports.
Should you have any questions with regards to this latest update, please feel free to contact me via email (email@example.com) or phone 0498 000 496.
