For those who need a picture of Varroa's growth if left unattended, see https://graphics.reuters.com/HEALTH-CORONAVIRUS-GROWTH/0100B5KL438/index.html

Yes, it is an article about Coronavirus, not varroa. And not starting any debate about that virus. But the curves are similar, and I think it helps show why testing and timely response is key for varroa control.

Takeaway: If you have a little varroa, you have a big problem if your response is inadequate.

Again, not put here for any discussion about the human disease. Let's not go there.

The implications of "exponential" seem to be something a lot of people don't entirely comprehend.
Blessedly, my bees seem to have been positively impacted by so called “stochastic” host-parasite interactions and external perturbations on the dynamics of infection and transmission sans treatment, at least so far.
