The varroa mite is not present in Australia, but experts are predicting that the mite will enter Australia in the near future.

This authorization is similar to the process in the United Kingdom, as it is classified as a Veterinary Medicine.
@BlackrockH@FIBKA_IE@agriculture_ie We’ve run into a delay getting our new batch release site in Ireland up and running. Covid has stalled audits by HPRA. Ireland distributors can’t purchase more than a few pails and we can only ship pallets to EU. Hoping to have solution in another few months 🤞🏼
@BlackrockH@TheHPRA@FIBKA_IE We are working with our UK distributors to supply IE until we get our new copacking and batch release site up and running in IE. Moving due to brexit, Covid and regulatory red tape has really delayed this process. Our goal is to have everything operational for Jan 2022.
@BestBees: @f_andresreyes Hi there! We use formic pro strips and administer them in June right as the mite population is reaching its seasonal peak. We will use half or full doses depending on colony size and monitor for weather conditions to make sure it’s not too hot out. 🐝
@NationalHoney: Whatever activities you've got planned for this weekend, don't forget the honey! Since honey is a convenient, portable source of energy, take it with you for tournaments and long periods of activity to help sustain your energy levels.
