Eradicate Asian Bees from Australia
Petition Background (Preamble):
If the Government doesn't foot the bill, the Honey and Food Industry will suffer (over $6 billion).
They are also the natural host to external mites Varroa spp. including V. destructor and V. jacobsoni.
They are seen as the Cane toad on wings and spread fast, as they swarm every 2-3 weeks to split and make new hive.
I believe the Apiarist's/Bee industry shouldn't have to foot the bill, it is the Border security/Customs and ship Captain's fault they arrived, not the Bee Industry, our Food Industry is also at risk, from this pest and will not only cost Industry but also the hip pocket of everyone.
If you believe the government should be footing the bill, please sign.
