Article Title Population dynamics of Varroa destructor in colonies of Apis mellifera macedonica in Greece
Author(s) Michel Kokkinis and Vasilios Liakos
Abstract Population dynamics of Varroa destructor were studied for two years (April 1999-April 2001) in 12 Apis mellifera macedonica colonies located in Thessaloniki, Greece. Colonies were not treated with acaricide. Mite population development was characterized by: (a) a period of increase from the end of March to mid-summer, followed by (b) a period of stabilization or marginal increase characterized by fluctuations and ending late October/early November, followed by (c) a period of decrease from October to the following March.
