From Hivelights magazine, CHC "For those interested, larvae of an as-of-yet unidentified insect were found on some honey bees in a hive in Manitoba. At this point it's suspected they are a beetle larvae, perhaps of the family Meloidae, which includes blister beetles. Larvae are being sent out for id. A cluster of the larvae was between the thorax and abdomen of some live bees in the brood area of the hive. It's estimated less than 1% of the bees had these on them. The honey bee colony was in 3 standard boxes but appeared to be struggling from varroa which was seen on some bees. The larvae were only found on live bees on frames. On the way home from the site, a couple bees I collected with these larvae on them were twitching and seemed otherwise paralysed. Other bees with the larvae on them seemed ok."
