The buzz about bee biosecurity in Australia

Industry events & webinars

This webinar is bringing together some of Australia’s bee biosecurity experts for a deep-dive into the world of bee pests and diseases

When it comes to increasing our crop yields, improving the quality of our produce and boosting our economy, bees are the quiet achievers. We all know bees are responsible for putting honey on our tables, but in fact most of the foods we enjoy are also brought to us with help bees. Farmers rely on the bees’ unique ability to pollinate the crops we eat and those we feed to animals,

This webinar will examine bee biosecurity, why it is important and what is being done to protect our bees from exotic pests and diseases.

Bee biosecurity is a national priority that is implemented off-shore, at the border, on-farm or in an apiary. Biosecurity is essential for all successful beekeeping businesses.
