Comparative testing of different methods for evaluation of Varroa destructor infestation of honey bee colonies
AbstractDifferent methods for evaluation of the degree of Varroa destructor infestation of honey bee colonies were tested. The methods using in vivo evaluation were the most sparing for the bees but less precise. The methods using evaluation with the killing of the bees or brood were the most precise but less sparing for bees.
