Abstract

The small hive beetle (Aethina tumida), a native to South Africa where is it only a minor pest, was discovered in Australia in 2002. Since this time small hive beetles have become an increasing problem in bee hives in the eastern states of Australia and appear to be spreading at a rapid rate. There is concern for even greater damage from this pest to the beekeeping industry in the warm moist regions
of Australia where it can reproduce faster.
