Susceptibility of European and Africanized honeybees (Apis mellifera L) and their hybrids to Varroa jacobsoni Oud



Susceptibility of European and Africanized honeybees (Apis mellifera L) and their hybrids to Varroa jacobsoni Oud



Apidologie 27(2): 93-103



This study was conducted in Mexico to determine if European and Africanized honey bees and their hybrids differed in susceptibility to Varroa infestation and to determine if Varroa differentially reproduced on different types of brood. European brood was twice as attractive to female Varroa compared to Africanized brood, while hybrid brood was equally or more attractive than European brood.
