Reporting - Bee Pests or Bee Swarms

Pest Alert

If you see or suspect
a new incursion of bees or a new bee pest
at an airport, seaport, in your community or anywhere in Australia,

Any bee coming into Australia may carry
unwanted bee pests and diseases.
Early detection is vital for early destruction

and the
protection of our Australian bee populations
