    Quantitative Virus Dynamics in Honeybee (Apis mellifera L.) Colonies along a New Expansion Front of the Parasite Varroa destructor Over the past fifty years, annual honeybee (Apis mellifera) colony losses have been steadily increasing worldwide. These losses have occurred in parallel with the...

    Honey Bee Apis mellifera Parasites in the Absence of Nosema ceranae Fungi and Varroa destructor Mites Few areas of the world have western honey bee (Apis mellifera) colonies that are free of invasive parasites Nosema ceranae (fungi) and Varroa destructor (mites). Particularly detrimental is V...

    Increased Tolerance and Resistance to Virus Infections: A Possible Factor in the Survival of Varroa destructor-Resistant Honey Bees (Apis mellifera) The honey bee ectoparasitic mite, Varroa destructor, has a world-wide distribution and inflicts more damage than all other known apicultural...

    Effect of Flumethrin on Survival and Olfactory Learning in Honeybees Flumethrin has been widely used as an acaricide for the control of Varroa mites in commercial honeybee keeping throughout the world for many years. Here we test the mortality of the Asian honeybee Apis cerana cerana after...

    Last year Clover queen bee initiated a thread "Apiguard and other thymol varroicides.." After a slow start the thread picked up but basically no one gave advice based on real experience on how to use thymol and how effective it was for controlling varroa. I'd like to make an attempt at gleaning...

    Varroa-Virus Interaction in Collapsing Honey Bee Colonies In colonies where varroa treatment reduced the mite load, colonies overwintered successfully, allowing the mites and viruses to be carried over with the bees into the next season. In general, AKI and DWV titres did not show any notable...

    If scientists in several colleges and universities, and several states, and several countries are saying small cell is worthless, and they isolate variables, why believe someone that only lost 30 percent of their colonies last year? Or think logically, when the bees "regress" to small cell what...
