Abstract

Sometime in the early 1970s the parasitic mite of honey bees, Varroa jacobsoni, arrived in Europe from colonies of the Asian honey bee, Apis cerana. Although the mite was not a serious problem for Asian bees, it has become the most serious pest affecting the European honey bee, A. mellifera. Over the past 15 years the mite has spread rapidly throughout Europe and South America, and more recently to North America. Today, Ireland is the only country in Europe where the mite has yet to be found.
