Varroa Information Page for Australian Beekeepers
With the change in Australia from elimination to management of Varroa, we are on a steep learning curve.

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.
