  4. Radar Monitoring of Honey Bees for Early Warning of Health Issues and Colony Collapse

    SBC: GhostWave Inc.            Topic: 813

    If a single factor can be identified that is harming honey bees in the U.S. it is the parasitic Varroamite (Varroa destructor). Varroa was first detected in the U.S. in 1987 and spread throughoutNorth America soon after. Varroa mites feed and reproduce on developing bees under theprotection of wax cappings which harms the bee directly but mites also vector highly virulentforms of honey bee viruses ...
