About this book

Varroa: Still a Problem in the 21st Century? has been published as a result of an IBRA conference held in early 2011. The eight chapters have been written by an international team of bee scientists who cover the varroa problem in depth: Stephen Martin outlines the current knowledge about the biology of the mite, while Joachim de Miranda discusses its interaction with other viruses and Max Watkins focuses upon the problems of chemical resistance. The key note speaker Prof. Keith Delaplane provides a balanced account of Integrated Pest Management, while Dave Chandler and Norman Carreck discuss control methods, whether chemical, biological, biotechnical or by bee breeding. To conclude, Jochen Pflugfelder suggests solutions to enable beekeepers to live with the mite in the 21st century.
