ABSTRACT A survey of six bee viruses on a large geographic scale was undertaken by using seemingly healthy bee colonies and the PCR technique. Samples of adult bees and pupae were collected from 36 apiaries in the spring, summer, and autumn during 2002. Varroa destructor samples were collected at the end of summer following acaricide treatment. In adult bees, during the year deformed wing virus (DWV) was found at least once in 97% of the apiaries, sacbrood virus (SBV) was found in 86% of the… Expand
Prevalence and distribution of six bee viruses in Korean Apis cerana populations.
TLDR
The prevalence and distribution of six bee viruses was investigated in 527 Apis cerana samples which were collected from five provinces in South Korea and the three provinces of Gyeongbuk, Jeonnam, and Chungbuk had the highest frequency of bee viruses. Expand
First detection of four viruses in honey bee (Apis mellifera) workers with and without deformed wings and Varroa destructor in Mexico
TLDR
This is the first molecular detection of these four viruses infecting honey bees and varroa mites in Mexico, and the association of these viruses with V. destructor is discussed. Expand
Viral infections in queen bees ( Apis mellifera carnica ) from rearing apiaries
TLDR
This is the first evidence of virus infection occurring in newly mated queens from mating nuclei in rearing apiaries, and the possible impacts of queen rearing technology and epidemiological influences on virus infection are discussed. Expand
Molecular detection and phylogenetic assessment of six honeybee viruses in Apis mellifera L. colonies in Bulgaria
TLDR
The present study has been the first to provide sequencing data and phylogenetics analyses of some honey bee viruses in Bulgaria by a reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Expand
Virus infections and winter losses of honey bee colonies (Apis mellifera)
TLDR
This is the first report demonstrating statistically significant correlations between viruses associated with Varroa destructor and winter mortality, and ABPV and DWV loads were positively correlated with each other. Expand
Slow bee paralysis virus and its transmission in honey bee pupae by Varroa destructor
TLDR
Because SBPV is also highly virulent, killing the bee rapidly and before significant virus replication, this virus remains rare in honey bee colonies even in the presence of V. destructor, which strongly suggests that transmission ofSBPV does occur during mite feeding. Expand
Nationwide Screening for Bee Viruses and Parasites in Belgian Honey Bees
TLDR
Interestingly, a significant correlation between the number of Varroa mites and DWV-B viral load is found and to determine the combined effect of these and other factors on honey bee health in Belgium, a follow up of colonies over multiple years is necessary. Expand
Occurrence and prevalence of seven bee viruses in Apis mellifera and Apis cerana apiaries in China.
TLDR
Populations of Apis mellifera and Apis cerana in China were surveyed for bee viruses and the first report of detection of IAPV and CBPV in A. cerana was reported. Expand

Detection of acute bee paralysis virus by RT-PCR in honey bee and Varroa destructor field samples: rapid screening of representative Hungarian apiaries
TLDR
The investigation revealed that two third of the apiaries were infected with ABPV at a 12.2% infection rate, and the presence of the virus was detected from colonies following a sudden collapse; these colonies were simultaneously infected with Nosema apis or infested with Varroa destructor. Expand
The prevalence of pathogens in honey bee (Apis mellifera) colonies infested with the parasitic mite Varroa jacobsoni
TLDR
The evidence suggests that V. jacobsoni activates APV replication in adult bees by its feeding behaviour and transmits virus from adult honey bees to pupae, and adult bees, in which APV is multiplying, transmit the virus to unsealed brood in the larval food. Expand
Detection of chronic honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) paralysis virus infection: application to a field survey
TLDR
A rab- bit polyclonal antiserum against CPV was obtained after purification of the virus in a Renografin gra- dient and the viral polypeptide composition was analysed by SDS-PAGE and Western blotting. Expand
Inapparent Virus Infections and their Interactions in Pupae of the Honey Bee (Apis mellifera Linnaeus) in Australia
SUMMARY When honey bee pupae from seemingly healthy Australian colonies were injected with various salt solutions, inapparent infections of black queen-cell virus (BQCV), Kashmir bee virus (KBV),Expand
The transmission of deformed wing virus between honeybees (Apis mellifera L.) by the ectoparasitic mite varroa jacobsoni Oud
TLDR
A positive relationship was found between increasing numbers of mites on individual bees and the incidence of morphological deformity and death and that much of the pathology previously associated with the effects of mite feeding could be attributed directly to secondary pathogens vectored by V. jacobsoni. Expand
The prevalence of viruses of honey bees in Britain
TLDR
Adult individuals of honey bee colonies in Britain are commonly infected with several small RNA viruses, including black queen cell virus and bee virus Y, which occur most frequently about June, together with Nosema apis with which both viruses are intimately but independently associated. Expand

TLDR
The RT-PCR assay proved to be a rapid, specific, and sensitive diagnostic tool for the direct detection of SBV nucleic acid in samples of infected honeybees and brood regardless of geographic origin. Expand

  • 2004
TLDR
The data demonstrates that both adult and immature mite progeny most likely acquire DWV from DWV-infected host bees and not from their mother mites, and that a majority of mites feeding on pupae that emerge with deformed wings will contain DWV. Expand
Polymerase Chain Reaction detection of deformed wing virus (DWV) in Apis mellifera and Varroa destructor
TLDR
A search for DWV in 40 colonies showed that DWV is broadly distributed in bee colonies and mites, and greater virus prevalence of virus was detected in Bees collected in autumn compared to bees collected in spring or during the summer period. Expand
