Bee Biosecurity Video Series
The Bee Biosecurity Video Series was produced by Plant Health Australia and Food Research new Zealand with sponsorship from a number of industry related organisations.
The series aims to let you know how individuals can help to foster a healthy honey bee population and the ways in which government, research organisations, plant industries, private companies and organisations with an interest in honey bees, are all contributing to preparing for an incursion of varroa.
The series of 12 videos covers a broad range of topics including honey bee biosecurity and surveillance programs, a hypothetical varroa incursion in Australia and what it might mean for beekeepers and crop producers, information about the life cycle of varroa and hive inspections, and ways in which varroa can be controlled if it enters and becomes established in Australia.
The Bee Biosecurity Video featured on this page focuses on the crucial role that Australia’s honey bee biosecurity system plays in protecting the health of our honey bees. Honey bee security is a set of measures designed to protect honey bees from established and exotic pests.
