Defra and the Welsh Assembly Government today launched a joint consultation on a strategy to improve and protect honey bee health. Honey bees face a growing number of threats from pests and diseases. Significant current widespread risks include American Foulbrood and European Foulbrood which are both subject to statutory controls, and varroa mites and associated viruses. Colony losses due to varroa infestation have increased since 2001 due to the mites developing resistance to available treatments. In addition, there are few alternative approved treatments. Potential exotic threats include small hive beetle, parasitic brood mites and undesirable species such as the Asian hornet, which prey on colonies.    ...more
