*NZ honey bees under new threat*

New Zealand honey bees are under new threat from the varroa destructor mite
following reports of resistance to treatment in the Auckland area.

National Beekeepers Association of New Zealand (NBA) joint CEO, Daniel Paul,
said bees from a hive near Auckland have been tested in the field by leading
bee and honey scientist Dr Mark Goodwin of Plant & Food Research, and showed
signs of resistance to synthetic pyrethroid treatments.

Mr Paul said this was a huge wakeup call to the beekeeping industry but also
New Zealandís entire agricultural and horticulture industries.
