A very close up view of a bee on honeycomb.
The picture shows a varroa mite attached to a honey bee - note how big it is compared to the size of the bee! Imagine having a tick this size on your body!

Support Bee Health - Would you like pesticides with that?

The recent infestation of the varroa mite into Australian bee colonies is forcing the use of insecticides inside our beehives to prevent massive losses! Our bees are almost defenceless against this destructive mite! Of course this will contaminate our honey and beeswax and affect the health of our honey bees!

However there is a better way.

Scientists and bee breeders have been working hard to develop genetics in honey bees to be able to cope with the varroa mite by detecting them and removing them from the hive themselves. This development is imperative to reduce and hopefully remove the need for the use of pesticides.
