Abstract

One of the focal point for bee health is Varroa destructor and its control. Moreover its interaction with several viruses are known to relate to winter mortality. Besides these obvious interactions, others are possible as weakening of the immune response by Varroa destructor is likely to affect the susceptibility of honey bees to other pathogens. To test this hypotheses we followed colony development and survival and pathogen occurrence on a colony level
