Honey Bees With Queen

Varroa mites are a constant threat to managed honey bees (Apis mellifera), but the most commonly used pesticide used against the mites appears to have negative effects on reproductive patterns of honey bee queens (shown here at center). A new study explores these effects and offers beekeepers insight on balancing mite management and hive health. (Photo by Jessica Louque, Smithers Viscient, Bugwood.org)
