Good article and comments from John Hartnell the Federated Farmers Bees spokesperson.
Since 2000, Varroa has seen the loss of at least 200,000 bee colonies. Federated Farmers believes it doesn’t matter what hat farmers wear; sheep, kiwifruit, mohair or dairy, all farmers are on the bee team, which is actually, New Zealand’s A team.
“Last week, Bee Week celebrated the honey bee and the massive contribution it makes to our economy and farm system,” says John Hartnell, Federated Farmers Bees spokesperson.
