It has been found in honey bee colonies imported from Ontario in wild blueberry fields at the following locations:
- Alnwick (near Brantville)
- Pont-Lafrance in Gloucester County
- two locations near Saint-Sauveur (Lord and Foy area)
In order to locate NB bee colonies in these areas, DAAF would like NB blueberry growers with fields in these areas to contact department staff and indicate where the NB colonies are located and who they belong to.
