Tropilaelaps mites are native to Asia and naturally parasitise the brood of the Giant honey bees of Asia, such as Apis species of Tropilaelaps mites (Tropilaelaps clareae and T. mercedesae) are also able to parasitise European honey bees (Apis mellifera).Tropilaelaps mites are external parasitic mites that feed on the haemolymph (blood) of importance of honey bees for pollination and food production have made them the subject of work by research universities, the USDA, and many beekeepers and commodity organizations that have invested significant effort and money to study honey bee evolution, biology, genetics, foraging behavior, communication strategies, and ://

Distribution of the species extends from northern Europe to southern Africa, and from the British Isles to the Ural Mountains, western Iran, and the Arabian

These mites are generally less than micrometres ( in) long, and can only be identified under a microscope. dorsalis can be found exclusively along the dorsal scutoscutellar groove of its host bee's thorax.

These mites feed on the bee's haemolymph from here. Two other parasitic bee mites   The honey bee problem known as Acariosis or Acarine, often called a disease, is actually an infestation of adult bees of Apis mellifera and other Apis species, caused by the microscopic Tarsonemid mite Acarapis woodii.

In USA they are known as tracheal   Introduction. The Africanization of the honey bee (Apis mellifera) in North America represents a model of how an invasive population of a subspecies can interact with a resident population of a different subspecies to create a zone in which hybrid populations of a species complex can exist (Pinto et al.

).Africanized honey bees in the southern United States are derived from the sub   Honey-bees vary greatly in their efficiency as pollinators of Australian plants (Ramsey, ; Taylor and Whelan, ; Paton, ; Celebrezze and Paton, ) and, although they may collect both pollen and nectar, they are considered to be potential pollen thieves for many plant species (Paton and Ford, ; Gross and Mackay,   Like all honey bee species, the western honey bee is eusocial, creating colonies with a single fertile female (or "queen"), many normally non-reproductive females or "workers", and a small proportion of fertile males or "drones".Individual colonies can house tens of thousands of bees.

Colony activities are organized by complex communication between individuals, through both pheromones and the The phorids that attack bees belong to three genera: Melaloncha, Styleta, and Apocephalus.

Melaloncha were last revised by Brown and Smith () and currently include species. Melaloncha species are neotropical and attack most tropical genera of Apidae (bumble bees, honey bees, and stingless honey bees) (Disney, ; Brown and Smith, ). The hive of the honey bee is a suitable habitat for diverse mites (Acari), including nonparasitic, omnivorous, and pollen-feeding species, and parasites.

Honey bees were brought to America in the 17 th century by the early European settlers. These bees were most likely of the subspecies A. mellifera, otherwise known as the German or “black” stock is very dark in color and tends to be very defensive, making bee management   The tracheal mite, Acarapis woodi (Actinedida or Prostigmata: Tarsonemidae), is the only internal mite attacking honey bees.

The tracheal mite was rst found in the tracheae of A. mellifera in after many bees and colonies died in Europe from what was called the Isle of Wight disease (De Jong et al.Needham et al.EickwortSammataro et al. Asian honey bees, Apis cerana japonica in Japan. It is fairly safe to say, wherever A. mellifera has been introduced, HBTM will most likely be found.

In addition to A. woodi, there are two external species in the genus Acarapis, namely A. externus Morgenthaler (infesting the neck region) and A.
