Progress report on selective breeding of honey bees for resistance to parasitic mites



Progress report on selective breeding of honey bees for resistance to parasitic mites



American Bee Journal 138(6): 464-466



To determine levels of infestation by Varroa jacobsoni in honey bee colonies, specially developed bottom boards were used to collect mites from 60 colonies located in 3 apiaries south-east of Guelph, Canada, in 1996. Mites were only found in 3 colonies, but by 1997, all colonies were affected. Mite numbers were recorded on a weekly basis, and the results are presented (as numbers of immature dead, adult dead, alive and alive but damaged).
