    Construction and Rescue of a Molecular Clone of Deformed Wing Virus (DWV) European honey bees are highly important in crop pollination, increasing the value of global agricultural production by billions of dollars. Current knowledge about virulence and pathogenicity of Deformed wing virus...
  2. Scientific Studies / CCD / Neonics
    Four Categories of Viral Infection Describe the Health Status of Honey Bee Colonies Honey bee virus prevalence data are an essential prerequisite for managing epidemic events in a population. A survey study was carried out for seven viruses in colonies representing a healthy Danish honey bee...

    Overwintering Is Associated with Reduced Expression of Immune Genes and Higher Susceptibility to Virus Infection in Honey Bees The eusocial honey bee, Apis mellifera, has evolved remarkable abilities to survive extreme seasonal differences in temperature and availability of resources by dividing...
  4. Scientific Studies / CCD / Neonics
    Lower Virus Infections in Varroa destructor-Infested and Uninfested Brood and Adult Honey Bees (Apis mellifera) of a Low Mite Population Growth Colony Compared to a High Mite Population Growth Colony A comparison was made of the prevalence and relative quantification of deformed wing virus...

    Infectivity of DWV Associated to Flower Pollen: Experimental Evidence of a Horizontal Transmission Route Deformed wing virus (DWV) is a honeybee pathogen whose presence is generally associated with infestation of the colony by the mite Varroa destructor, leading to the onset of infections...
  6. Diseases and Pests
    Parasite Pressures on Feral Honey Bees (Apis mellifera sp.) Feral honey bee populations have been reported to be in decline due to the spread of Varroa destructor, an ectoparasitic mite that when left uncontrolled leads to virus build-up and colony death. While pests and diseases are known...

    A Virulent Strain of Deformed Wing Virus (DWV) of Honeybees (Apis mellifera) Prevails after Varroa destructor-Mediated, or In Vitro, Transmission The globally distributed ectoparasite Varroa destructor is a vector for viral pathogens of the Western honeybee (Apis mellifera), in particular the...
  8. Diseases and Pests
    Sequence Recombination and Conservation of Varroa destructor Virus-1 and Deformed Wing Virus in Field Collected Honey Bees (Apis mellifera) In areas where V. destructor is established, virus recombination occurs and chimeric viruses between DWV and the Varroa destructor virus-1 (VDV1) [8-10]...
