Prevalence of Varroa destructor in Africanized honey bees (Apis mellifera scutellata Lepeletier) in Lara State, Venezuela



Prevalence of Varroa destructor in Africanized honey bees (Apis mellifera scutellata Lepeletier) in Lara State, Venezuela



Proceedings of the 8th IBRA International Conference on Tropical Bees and VI Encontro sobre Abelhas, Ribeirao Preto, Brasil, 6-10 September, 2004: 347-350



This study was conducted during June-July 2003 and April-May 2004 in colonies of Africanized honey bees distributed in two different communities in the state of Lara, Venezuela. These colonies belonged to the Apicultural Research Station facilities of the Universidad Centroccidental "Lisandro Alvarado" (UCLA). The colonies were maintained in one deep brood chambers and managed to prevent swarming.
