To my knowledge several studies suggested that small cell had no impact on varroa in EHB. Small cell is the natural sized cell for AHB....so I don't think it has ever been tested in that population.
Those who claim small cell eliminates varroa have always also claimed that they kept EHB.
This has all been hashed and rehashed countless times on Beesource.
