    USA- FIGHTING AGAINST THE VARROA MITE WITH RUSSIAN GENETICS

    Dan Conlon, owner of Warm Colors Apiary in Deerfield is  a member of the Russian Honey Bee Breeders Association. He began introducing honey bees from Russia’s Primorsky region into his hives 14 years ago. The Russian bees, which are from the same area as the mites, have developed a natural defense against them: They groom each other, removing the bugs and tossing them out of their hives — a behavior which their European cousins don’t exhibit. But the adult bees aren’t the only ones threatened by the mites. During the pupal stage — the period in which a bee transitions from a larva into an adult — the mites force their way into the cells and try to eat the pupa. According to Conlon, the Russian bees have developed a way to sense when that is occurring and are able to pull those mites out as well. “In nature, a lot of these mechanisms appear over long periods of time, and some have these abilities that help them survive,” said Conlon. “It’s probably the best solution yet, it’s very exciting. They’re hardier bees. Eventually there won’t be any treatment necessary.”
