    You did not state how you have made this determination. My personal opinion is that one can only confidently state this after an effective alcohol wash. The inability to see mites through a visual inspection of the hive should never be taken as evidence that mites are not present and are not a problem.

    My understanding is that APV is spread by varroa mites, but there is no connection between the spread of CBPV and varroa mites.

    One other clear indicator of the virus, if you see it, is greasy, wet looking black bees wandering on the top bars that seem weak and sickly.

    Sod web worms are still thriving in Central Florida.

    I'm north of you on the AL/FL line. We will often have some army worms in the fields around this time. Hell on peanuts. We would only spray them if we could not go ahead and pull the peanuts out of the field. And the stuff we use will kill bees if not applied appropriately. But heavy pesticide application season is June and July in this area. Not to say it does not happen at other times.
