No varroa found on Labrador

There's one more place besides Hawaii, Australia and New Zealand's South Island where varroa has not yet been identified -- it's Newfoundland and Labrador. (What bees would want to live there anyway?, the insensitive observer might ask). They don't even have the tracheal mite.

And they want to keep it that way -- they now have a local regulation barring the import of bees into the Newfoundland and Labrador province.
