Honey bee mites, SEM

Honey bee mites. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of bee mites (Varroa sp.) on the body of a bee. Varroa are parasitic mites that attack honey bees (Apis sp.), causing varroatosis and spreading other diseases. They attach to the body of the bee and weaken it by sucking haemolymph, the insect's 'blood'. In doing this the mites can spread viruses like Deformed Wing Virus to the bee. A significant mite infestation will lead to the death of a honey bee colony and may be a contributing factor to Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). Magnification: x30 when printed 10 centimetres wide
