The ability of Varroa destructorto reproduce in the African honey bee Apis mellifera scutellatawas studied. In addition, the effects of space within the brood cell and short brood developmental time on mite reproduction, was investigated using A. m. scutellatacells parasitised by a A. m. capensis worker pseudo-clone. In A. m. scutellataworker cells Varroaproduced 0.9 fertilised females per mother mite which is the same as found in susceptible European honey bees, but greater than the 0.4… CONTINUE READING
