Stop Varroa Mite Spreading in Australia

Almondgeddon a super spreading event of the Varroa mite.

 In a shocking turn of events NSW commercials beekeepers will be able to get a permit to migrate hives to pollinate Almonds.

 Intense lobbying from the billion dollar Almond industry and commercial beekeepers represented by AHBIC who have been told they will not be compensated for missed pollination income they rely upon.

 While they burn billions of bees in Newcastle and apply a poisoning program that will kill wild and indigenous bees it beggars belief they will allow the potential spread of the mite to Victoria. After leaving the Almond’s potentially infected hives will be dispersed throughout NSW.

 I am sad thinking of those poor NSW beekeepers whose hives have been destroyed may will be all in vain. Thinking of all the volunteer workers, beekeepers and DPI staff that are trying to contain the infestation only to have a doggy permit system hurt the potential of Australia remaining Varroa free.

We need to stop all hive movement in NSW until Varroa is contained. We should be taking a precautionary approach no NSW hives should cross borders until atleast January 2023.

 I’m raising funds to protect Australian bees and the Australia’s food industry and Australia’s food security and  27000 beekeepers against varroa mite.

 I want instruct lawyer Michael Morehead to commence proceedings to put an injunction on the movement of hives in NSW until we know that varroa mite has been contained.

 This is in response to a dodgey proposed permit scheme that will see millions of potentially infected bees crossing the border. This fundraiser is against the spread of Varroa Mite and the spread of bee disease at the monoculture almonds. Any extra funds raised will be dispersed amongst beekeepers in the Newcastle region that have lost their apiaries and may be waiting a long time for compensation and no compensation for missed earnings.
