Varroa Mite: Varroa Mite parasite is around 1.5 mm in diameter, dark brown colored and with four legs. This parasitic disease which occurs a Varroa Mite clings to a bee is called varroa disease, and it is a dangerous and contagious disease spreading like cancer in the bee colony. Baby bees cannot grow in infected colonies by varroa which that parasite feed with the bee blood. Also, adult bees get weaker and can not fly.
Varroa Mites leave their spawn where the baby bees are growes, because of that these bees are getting weak and inefficient. In infected colonies, newborn bees are not healthy. If a colony owns the infected pups, there is a risk to lose it.
During the regular season condition, if there are dead or wingless bees in front of the hive, it should remind us Varroa Mite. It needs to be an urgent intervention to infected Varroa colonies.
Nosema: It is an adult bee disease caused by an intracellular parasite called Nosema Apis. It is most common bee disease. This parasite will lead to the degradation of the digestive system of the bees. If this disease will not treat on time and its continue for a long time that all bees are getting weaker during this time and they will be a dead end. This disease is more likely to be seen in humid environments.
It’s critical to point out that which season you will fight against Varroa and Nosema for finding the right method. It is inconvenient to use chemical methods for fighting with Nosema and Varroa that before and during the honey season. Because chemical factors decrease the quality of honey by leaving residues in honey. Natural methods should be preferred to struggle with Varroa.
