Exporting honey, honeycomb and other apiary products

Tasmania is the only State in Australia where Braula coeca exists. It is a wingless fly which has developed a commensal relationship with the European honey bee Apis mellifera. Braula larvae create branching tunnels through the comb honey, reducing its value.

​The document below describes the protocol for the treatment of comb honey for human consumption for export from Tasmania to mainland Australia, and includes a declaration form for exporters.
