To my knowledge there's no CCD down under. Heck, I'm not aware of any diagnosed cases in the past few years in the states for that matter. Also to my knowledge neonics are used there just as they're used in the states. The one thing that you don't have that Europe and the US does is varroa mites. Many of the anti neonic folks don't like to be reminded of that as they pursue trying to ban neonics, claiming it's the root cause of high bee losses. The root cause for losses is unmistakably varroa.
