Abstract
Honey bee queens were investigated to reveal the status of Deformed Wing Virus (DWV) with some parasitic pathogens. DWV, nosemosis, amebiasis and varroosis were detected among samples. This is the first record of honey bee queen's DWV cases with multiple parasitic infections in colony collapsed apiaries of Turkey.
