quote from that site:

Quote
The bees' nemesis, the eight-legged Varroa destructor mite, is the size of a pin head. It gets inside the bees' airways, begins feasting and blocks breathing. It also eats bee larvae.



looks like they got some of the mite facts wrong, cant tell varroa from trachel mites.

The just simplyfied it for the readers.  Turned two mites into one and combined their characteristics.  Never let the facts get in the way of simplyfying the story.  Smiley
