AFB near me

From July 2020 NSW DPI will collate a list of NSW postcodes where American foulbrood (AFB) notifications and detections were reported each month. Please see the table below.

Please note that due to privacy considerations NSW DPI cannot discuss individual cases or provide more precise location information. Submissions where location of the hive was not reported cannot be included in this summary.

If you keep bees near a reported postcode it is best practice to inspect your colonies for AFB disease as soon as practical.

As of 1 July 2020 it is a condition of registration that all beekeepers in NSW meet their obligations regarding AFB under the Honey Bee Industry Biosecurity Code of Practice. In particular please see sections 4 and 7 of the Code.

If you require further information or support please email bee.biosecurity@dpi.nsw.gov.au with your request and providing your best contact details and a DPI bee biosecurity officer will contact you.
