Abstract

The ability of a queen honey bee (Apis mellifera L.) to serve as a host for the honey bee tracheal mite Acarapis woodi (Rennie) was recognized not long after the discovery of this mite parasite (Rennie, 1921). Reports by Morgenthaler (1930, 1933) and Anderson (1933) discussed several aspects of queen infestation.
