Varroa jacobsoni infestation of adult Africanized and Italian honey bees (Apis mellifera) in mixed colonies in Brazil



Varroa jacobsoni infestation of adult Africanized and Italian honey bees (Apis mellifera) in mixed colonies in Brazil



Genetics and Molecular Biology 22(3): 321-323



Six mixed colonies were made with Italian and Africanized honey bees. The percentage infestation by V. jacobsoni was significantly lower in adult Africanized (1.69+or-0.44%) than Italian bees (2.79+or-0.65%). This ratio was similar to that found in Mexico, even though the Africanized bees tested there had not been in contact with V. jacobsoni, compared to >20 years of the coexistence in Brazil.
