Abstract:
North Carolina's honeybee population has been decimated by the Varroa mite. Losses of wild bee colonies are estimated as high as 95 percent. The mites, a native of Southeast Asia, reached the western United States in the 1980s and by 1989, they were destroying the state's wild bee population. Domestic beekeepers also suffered significant losses. Lavallee discusses a program started by North Carolina State University that is designed not just to restock the state with bees, but with new beekeepers as well.
