Control of honey bee diseases and pests in New Zealand



Control of honey bee diseases and pests in New Zealand



American Bee Journal 126(11): 742-745



There are nearly 7000 registered beekeepers in New Zealand with a total of 330 000 colonies in Langstroth hives. The Apiaries Act (1969) gives wide powers for the control of AFB; hives must be inspected annually and, if AFB is present, combs, bees and frames must be destroyed and other hive parts sterilized. The incidence of AFB is kept to about 0.6%. The incidence of nosema disease may be similar; the only drug permitted for treatment is fumagillin.
