Apis cerana and Varroa jacobsoni in Townsville - No.4

An update has been received to say that a varroa mite was found in the comb of the Asian bee nest at Annandale. This now becomes IP2.

This find is not surprising.

Surveillance is now being carried out in the Annandale area around where this nest was found.
