Queensland authorities are confident that a second extermination program for the varroa termites at the port of Townsville has recaptured Australia.
Although there is already a plan to eradicate it in 2016, in 2019, two Asian honey beehives found varroa worms inside, Biosecurity Queensland.
If they are found in a nest by the authorities, they only have 48 hours to identify, identify and identify the nest.
In subsequent reconnaissance programs and to some extent, Biosequitti Queensland is sure to eradicate the termites that pose a dangerous invasion of the bee population.
Varoa termites are known to bury themselves in beehive combs, attach themselves to new bee populations and grow “some of them”, says Joe Martin of the Queensland Beekeepers Association (QBA).
“What they started to see was a sharp decline in the number of newborns, and eventually the colony would die,” she told the AP.
“We expect the number of colonies to decrease by at least two-thirds in the first few years after the outbreak of varroa mite here in Australia.
We strongly believe that you have effectively and truly eradicated the pest, but as we say, it will not happen again, when.
According to the Secretary of State for QBA, the threat of lunches could hamper the industry, which is essential for the success of agriculture and fruit production throughout Australia.
In Queensland, the bee industry contributes $ 2.4 billion annually to the economy and $ 14.2 billion nationally.
The state’s commercial bee farms are mainly located in the South Down region and the Great Dividend Territory, but extend as far north as Queensland.
But while the QBA has self-confident businesses and officials on it, the concern now is on the bees.
Ms. Martin believes that since the outbreak, there have been people who are not very fond of gardening bees and pests.
“Not only are these high-risk ports, but they are beekeepers in nearby areas that may not be as up-to-date in their knowledge and understanding of pests and diseases,” he said.
You may lose that if you do not complete those regular checks or alcohol tests, especially for varroa worms.
We only want one bee with an ant on its back that can destroy this industry.
