Wouldn't this be great news if they don't develope a taste for bees.  The sound did not work on the vimeo, is that because I have not given up my data to them?

Now this is what science is all about.  Find a good predator to kill off other ones that hurt your livestock and can coexist with them.  According to the info on these little bugs they can live off of fungi when there are no mites around to eat on as well.  Seems strange that we haven't heard about them sooner, but then again we are talking about corporate america here and if there isn't a ton of money involved it isn't going to get noticed..

RHBee,  Please keep us informed on how well it works for you.  This could be the very thing that turns the tides  on the varroa for a change.
