Varroa Information Page for Australian Beekeepers

With the change in Australia from elimination to management of Varroa, we are on a steep learning curve.  It is important that beekeepers monitor and manage Varroa in order to maintain honey bee health.  The VAA is committed to supporting beekeepers in dealing with this parasite and provides the following links. We strongly recommend relying on evidence-based and authoritative sources of information about the incursion and management of the Varroa destructor parasitic mite of the honeybee.
