The varroa mite is not present in Australia, but experts are predicting that the mite will enter Australia in the near future. NOD and sponsor BASF were approached by Plant Health Australia (PHA) to begin the process of Medical Authorization in Australia. This authorization is similar to the process in the United Kingdom, as it is classified as a Veterinary Medicine.
@VorsichtBienen: As the Varroa Destructor Mite affects the health of the bee's later in the year, you can see the abdomen of the bees becoming shorter. When the wings are longer than the abdomen, the colony has a health problem.
Not necessarily the Mite directly, but often due to the Mite.
