Varroa destructor is a parasitic mite that preys upon both the adult bee and the developing larva, carries bacteria and viruses and is implicated in significant hive losses. Mite infestations can cause nutritional deficits and deformations, reduce colony development and increase winter mortality1. Treatment is an essential part of maintaining a healthy hive. Bayer is committed to developing new tools to help control the destructive varroa mite.
