Yes winter is on, the Banksias are still flowering thanks to the mild autumn and so are some of the Eucalypts.
I have honey, but its all mixed on the frames with eggs and larvae and water and pollen etc. Id have to sacrifice a frame to get what they want unless I cut out some comb or something.
Theres no information other that what you see in the photo. I guess the biohazard bag is a standard bag for putting a sample in.
I would have thought there would have been a "dear sir, as a part of the Governments desire to keep the bee industry free of disease............." letter but there wasnt.
I spose I might be able to milk some burr comb if ther is any, but if they want a clean strained sample they can strain it themselves!
