Asian Honey Bees swarming in Cairns.
During a recent insect inspection in the Edmonton area of Cairns, Terry recently discovered some nesting Asian Honey Bees swarming in a Cairns roof.
The small lockup garage in this client’s backyard proved to have a surprise batch of Asian Honey Bees. At their worst, Asian Honey Bees can distribute a Varroa (parasitic mite) that is threatening to local bee populations.
Once removed, the bees left behind some interesting honeycombs. It’s always interesting what you find on an North Queensland pest control project!
