    Default Re: Levels of VSH genetics

    According to what I read about the topic, Primorsky bees stop brooding when the nectar stops, like in a draught or similar, and then start cleaning infested cells and grooming. Kind of a natural brood rearing break.

    >And from my understanding most all colonies that express the VSH trait also possess the Hygentic trait (somebody correct me if I misunderstood this).

    I believe all of the VSH bees are hygienic. Not all the hygienic bees have the VSH trait. It seems to be a particular expression of hygienic behavior. Apparently some additional genetic trait that allows the hygienic bees to sense Varroa infestations.
