Mites are hypothesized to spread between most managed colonies via phoretically riding forager bees when they engage in robbing colonies or they drift between hives. However, widely spaced wild colonies show Varroa infestation despite limited opportunities for robbing and little or no drifting of bees between colonies. Both wild and managed colonies may also exchange mites via another mechanism that has received remarkably little attention or study: floral transmission. The present study tested the ability of mites to infest foragers at feeders or flowers. We show that Varroa destructor mites are highly capable of phoretically infesting foraging honey bees, detail the mechanisms and maneuvers by which they do so, and describe mite behaviors post-infestation.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Peck, David T.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Varroa destructor Mites Can Nimbly Climb from Flowers onto Foraging Honey Bees</dcterms:title> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/"/> <dc:creator>Seeley, Thomas D.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Peck, David T.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Seeley, Thomas D.</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-07-16T13:01:19Z</dc:date> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/46402/3/Peck_2-5900gedjna797.pdf"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
