Did you know that the humble honey bee plays a major role in the pollination of food crops in Australia?
It’s estimated that one in every three mouthfuls of food that Australians consume relies on pollination support by honey bees.
Our long term vision is that the Purple Hive Project will create a network of beehives located across Australia that are capable of detecting the Varroa Destructor. The vision is that the Purple Hive Project will help to protect the health of the Australian honey industry, and more broadly Australian agriculture that relies on honeybee pollination.
