Reinfestation of apiaries after treatment: a frequent cause of failure in the control of Varroa jacobsoni






Ape Nostra Amica 15(5): 4-5, 7-9

Reinfestation of apiaries after treatment: a frequent cause of failure in the control of Varroa jacobsoni

The results of an experiment carried out in NE Italy are given. Ten colonies, initially free of V. jacobsoni, were treated during the course of one year with various long-lasting acaricides. Incoming mites, killed by the treatments, were counted twice per week. Drone excluders were fitted to 5 hives to prevent drones from entering but this did not affect reinfestation.
