    Default Small Hive Beetle update

    I have to say that the apparent success of the eradication attempt in southern Italy is surprising ... and good. It might still be lurking somewhere there - or elsewhere in Europe - but this sea of green dots for 2015 is very promising.

    From the Italian vet site: http://www.izsvenezie.it/aethina-tumida-in-italia/

    Surprising indeed.
    Welcome if true.

    Truly inspiring if it's proven that they've eradicated it.

    Then again, it's also validation for mass destruction. Sometimes one person's victory is someone else's loss.

    What about the case in Switzerland though?

    That was confirmed as not being shb. One of the recent SBA mags had this confirmed.

    Excellent news. The Italian authorities deserve a big pat on the back

    Are there any further updates? Here's hoping the area is still clear.

    The maps on the Italian vet service web site (usually the most up to date site) are showing that it was still clear on 7th July. All looking good.
