Nous avons etudie le mecanisme selon lequel des abeilles (Apis mellifera), selectionnees pour le caractere « suppression de la reproduction des acariens » (abeilles SMR), pouvaient agir negativement sur le succes reproductif (S.R.) de l'acarien Varroa destructor, notre hypothese etant que les abeilles SMR detectent et eliminent les nymphes qui ont des acariens reproducteurs, donnant ainsi l'impression que les acariens restant sur les nymphes au stade preeclosion se reproduisent mal. Nous avons…

Le stress chez l’abeille domestique (Apis mellifera) : analyse des modifications physiologiques et comportementales
L’abeille domestique (Apismellifera) a un role majeur dans les ecosystemes naturels et agronomiques mais est exposee a un nombre croissant de pressions environnementales (nouveaux parasites,
Rôle des intéractions virus/ pesticides dans le déclin des abeilles
TLDR
Les abeilles domestiques subissent des pertes de colonies sans precedents, ce qui pourrait a terme avoir un fort impact economique compte tenu de leur apport a l’agriculture en service of pollinisation, en general teste separement sur les individus ou les colonies.
Application de la démarche de drug-design pour la conception de nouveaux médicaments vétérinaires contre le parasite Varroa destructor (Acari ˸ Varroidae)
TLDR
La demarche de drug design, generalement utilisee en sante humaine, a ete appliquee pour le developpement de nouveaux medicaments veterinaire a usage varroacide, explore le potentiel varoacide d’acaricides de la famille des carbamates, demontrant l’interet du pirimicarbe comme varroACide.
The ectoparasite mite Varroa destructor Anderson and Trueman in southeastern Brazil apiaries: effects of the hygienic behavior of Africanized honey bees on infestation rates
TLDR
Resultados dessa pesquisa demonstraram that as variaveis TI e CH foram negativamente correlacionadas, sugerindo that colonias that possuem CH mais elevado possuen menores TI.
Relationships between resistance characteristics of honey bees (Apis mellifera) against Varroa mites (Varroa destructor)
TLDR
The results show, that SMR and REC might be suitable selection traits to decrease the mite population growth within the colonies.
Hygienic behaviour selection via freeze-killed honey bee brood not associated with chalkbrood resistance in eastern Australia
TLDR
Surprisingly, hygienic behaviour was not a significant predictor of the presence of infection of the honey bee brood disease chalkbrood (Ascosphaera apis) and was not influential in predicting severity of chalk Brood the infection in surveyed honey bee colonies.
Hygienic behaviour selection via freeze-killed honey bee brood not associated with chalkbrood resistance in eastern Australia
TLDR
Surprisingly, hygienic behaviour was not a significant predictor of the presence of infection of the honey bee brood disease chalk Brood (Ascosphaera apis) and was not influential in predicting severity of chalkbrood infection in surveyed honey bee colonies.
Natural selection, selective breeding, and the evolution of resistance of honeybees (Apis mellifera) against Varroa
TLDR
Evidence that honeybees are an extremely outbreeding species is provided, showing that natural selection can result in resistance in large panmictic populations when a large proportion of the population survives the initial Varroa invasion.
An Evaluation of the Associations of Parameters Related to the Fall of Varroa destructor (Acari: Varroidae) from Commercial Honey Bee (Hymenoptera: Apidae) Colonies as Tools for Selective Breeding for Mite Resistance
TLDR
Varroa destructor trapped on bottom boards were assessed as indirect measurements of colony mite population differences and potential indicators of mite resistance in commercial colonies of Russian and Italian honey bees by using 35 candidate measurements.
An investigation of the relationships between common stressors, brood-signaling, hygienic behavior, and selective breeding in the Honey Bee (Apis mellifera)
TLDR
Improved understanding of the relationships between honey bee stressors, brood signals, and hygienic behavior has the potential to improve honey bee health, and thus positively influence the honey bee’s enormous contribution to the economy and the environment.

High Humidity in the Honey Bee (Apis mellifera L.) Brood Nest Limits Reproduction of the Parasitic Mite Varroa jacobsoni Oud.
TLDR
Factors influencing reproduction of the parasitic mite Varroa jacobsoni have become a central theme of honey bee pathology and in cold, temperate, and Mediterranean climates the mite population grows exponentially until the colony collapses.
Field assays for hygienic behavior in honey bees (Hymenoptera: Apidae)
TLDR
It is concluded that the freeze-killed brood assay is the most conservative and reliable screening procedure for hygienic behavior and results indicate that bees from nonhyGienic lines can be induced to express hygiensic behavior only if a sufficiently strong stimulus is present.
Low sperm counts and reduced fecundity of mites in colonies of honey bees (Hymenoptera: Apidae) resistant to Varroa jacobsoni (Mesostigmata: Varroidae)
TLDR
Both absolute infertility and reduced fecundity may be associated with the same host-related factors.
Honey Bees (Hyntenoptera: Apidae) in the United States That Express Resistance to Varroa jacobsoni (Mesostigmata: Varroidae)
TLDR
This study showed that resistance to varroa mites is present in the honey bee population in the United States, nonreproduction of mites was highly correlated with the growth of a mite population, and nonreproducing mites may be a valuable characteristic for selecting bees for resistance tovarroamites.
Varroa destructor Infestation in Untreated Honey Bee (Hymenoptera: Apidae) Colonies Selected for Hygienic Behavior
TLDR
Results indicate that hygienic colonies with queens mated naturally to unselected drones had significantly fewer mites on adult bees and within worker brood cells than Starline colonies for up to 1 yr without treatment in a commercial, migratory beekeeping operation.
