Distributional characteristics of the mite Varroa jacobsoni in drone brood of honey bees



Distributional characteristics of the mite Varroa jacobsoni in drone brood of honey bees



Vestnik Zoologii ( 6): 45-52



In a study carried out in the USSR, analysis of drone brood of the honeybee taken from various hive zones indicated a tendency for Varroa jacobsoni to form groups in a single cell; the reason for this grouping, which increases with a decrease in the size of the brood, is considered to lie in local increases in infestation density. Spatial distribution showed no regular characteristics at hive level, and there was no positive or negative orientation of the mites relative to the entrance.
