2019 Honey Bee Health Survey results

The Honey Bee Health Survey 2019 was designed to provide a snapshot of bee health in the Australian honey bee industry, focusing on issues such as pests and diseases and pollination.

Following on from the 2018 Honey Bee Health Survey, the survey examined the level of biosecurity awareness amongst Australian beekeepers, including knowledge of pest and disease symptoms, and the Australian Honey Bee Industry Biosecurity Code of Practice.

The survey was open for eight weeks between 4 November and 31 December 2019, and had over 2500 participants.

The results will help to decide where education and awareness activities are needed to keep Australia’s bees as healthy as they can be.
