The Australian honeybee industry produces honey and other bee products for domestic consumption and export, through apiculture of Apis mellifera. The industry has an estimated GVP of A$80 million. In addition, the annual benefit of apiculture to general agriculture through plant pollination in Australia is estimated to range from A$4 to 6 billion. Because of the significant value of this industry there is a need for effective biosecurity. A component of this is the use of surveillance.
