Teamwork called for in bee disease fight

“As per the declaration by the Minister for Agriculture and Livestock regarding quarantine in the Highlands region, under the Animal Disease Control Act, the Bee Office in Goroka has been in charge in taking preventative and control measures,” Wilson said.

Minister Tommy Tomscoll has called, upon advice, the seven Highlands provinces to restrict movement of bees and materials used for honey production between districts and provinces.

“Area covered included Daulo, Unggai Bena, Henganofi, Okapa and parts of Lufa. Goroka will be completed soon,” Wilson said.
