Reproduction of Varroa jacobsoni parasitizing newly-emerged Apis mellifera drones introduced into Apis cerana japonica colony



Reproduction of Varroa jacobsoni parasitizing newly-emerged Apis mellifera drones introduced into Apis cerana japonica colony



Honeybee Science 22(1): 31-36



Damage to A. mellifera by Varroa mites is a serious problem for beekeepers, but A. cerana, suffers hardly any damage. Varroa was investigated on A. cerana japonica workers collected from natural colonies, in pupae from worker and drone cells, and in nest debris from the bottom of hives of A. cerana japonica. Varroa was rarely found in A. cerana japonica colonies, suggesting high resistance.
