Sharing information & ideas for interested beekeepers in Southern Tasmania.

Global Initiative for Honeybee Health Launched

CSIRO have announced a program to improve our understanding of the behaviour of honeybees. The Global Initiative for Honeybee Health is “an international collaboration of researchers, beekeepers, farmers, industry and technology companies set up to research the threats to bee health in order to better understand bee colony collapse and find solutions that will help secure crop pollination.”

The Southern Beekeepers Association, especially President Peter Norris, have been involved in the early stages of testing the sensor packages in hives near Geeveston.
