Ontogenesis of the mite varroa jacobsoni in worker and drone honey bee apis mellifera cecropia brood cells



Ontogenesis of the mite varroa jacobsoni in worker and drone honey bee apis mellifera cecropia brood cells



Journal of Apicultural Research 22(3): 200-206



Ontogenesis of V. jacobsoni Oudemans (1904) was observed at 4 intervals in brood cells of the honeybee A. m. cecropia. Between July and Nov. 1981, in the region of Thessaloniki, [Greece], 241 worker and 107 drone cells infested with fertile mites were examined in the post-capping period. A macroscopic distinction between the sexes was recorded photographically as early as the 1st mobile phase of mite ontogenesis. In cells containing either worker or drone brood, egg-laying by the mite began .apprx. 60 h after the cell was capped and 1 egg was laid every 30 min. Normally the offspring included only 1 male, which developed from an egg laid .apprx. 96 h after capping. Ontogenesis lasted 7.5 days in the female Varroa and 5.5 days in the male. The mite can lay at most 7 eggs in a drone cell and 6 in a worker cell.
