For the May edition of The Australasian Beekeeper we get an official statement from Apimonda on honey fraud. We look at five ways to help save native bee habitats and in the Apiary covers helping getting ready for winter, we also feature an article so you're no longer daunting the job of requeening. We have the 2nd part of the pesticide situation which will keep you thinking and we have a closer look into pheromone regulation.

Mark your diaries for June this year for the NSW Amateur Beekeepers Association Conference 2019, this years conference topic is 'The Art & Science of Beekeeping'. With all things invasive, we look at sightings of cane toads in the Hunter Region as well as a new revised approach 
for the control of American Foulbrood in NSW. Clarence covers the topic that a dangerous bee virus might be just an innocent bystander in our regular magazine feature on Recent Research.
