Plant Health Australia: “In recognition of the vulnerability of European honey bees to colony collapse events in other parts of the world, as well as increasing pressure brought about by climate change, chemical use, and habitat disturbance and reduction, Australian horticultural industries are actively investigating the use of Australian native bees as pollinators. While offering benefits for increasing populations of individual species of native bees, little is known regarding biosecurity considerations associated with larger scale production or movement of native bee species, raising potential environmental concerns.”
