The reproductive ability of Varroa destructor in worker brood of Africanized and hybrid honey bees in Costa Rica



The reproductive ability of Varroa destructor in worker brood of Africanized and hybrid honey bees in Costa Rica



Journal of Apicultural Research 42(4): 65-67



From February to July 2001, the reproductive ability of V. destructor in artificially infested worker brood cells of Africanized honey bees (AHB; Apis mellifera) and hybrids (HF1) of AHB x European honey bees was investigated in Costa Rica.
