Just got wind of this story (thank you to all the lovely friends and fans who send me links and scans and even clippings... it is GREATLY appreciated and I am going to endeavour to share more of them on the blog this year)...
Anyway, it's a great little story about urban beekeeping and amateur beekeepers being the frontline of our defence against the varroa mite. You can watch the story here - http://www.abc.net.au/news/video/2011/02/14/3138284.htm
The timing is also a little uncanny as I am about to take delivery this evening of a beehive to go on my balcony! Stay tuned for more on that one (not sure if I'm really passionate or really mad... or perhaps a little of both)!
