Asian bee invasion in QLD is going to be a real threat to the Aussie bee industry by the looks. :(

Thanks, Pete.  I hadn't heard recently what the situation is.

Apis Cerana are in QLD and governments are encouraging folk to help eradicate these critters with a questionable strategy that has not been fully explained to all of us who interested. Bob Katter has had something to do enticing more resources towards it, but havent heard a lot lately. Anyone heard more, we would appreciate knowing what actions are in place. The Cane Toad is an example of letting it go.
