Giv­ing up too eas­ily

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

CAN’T be­lieve the authorities have sim­ply de­cided to aban­don the cam­paign to erad­i­cate the Asian honey­bees. They have said it’s just too dif­fi­cult so, on March 31, they’re giv­ing up. No mat­ter that the in­va­sion has the po­ten­tial to com­pletely de­stroy the bee in­dus­try, it’s just too hard. Seems amaz­ing they were able to erad­i­cate the pa­paya fruit fly in­fes­ta­tion in 1998 and they’re much smaller than the bees but now it’s just too hard. Fu­ture gen­er­a­tions will de­plore this lost op­por­tu­nity.
