Varroa and Tropilaelaps

Interesting article and worth a read. There’s mention of a mite I hadn’t heard mention of previously (or at least don’t recall as I’m making this post).

Asian beekeepers who deal with both mites worry more about Tropilaelaps than Varroa , and recent research found that amitraz, the current go-to miticide in the U.S., doesn’t work on Tropilaelaps .

We all hope that Tropilaelaps never makes it here…
