U.S. Department of
stepped up research in
southern Texas on ways
to eradicate, control or
limit the spread of a
dangerous to honey
bees, a USDA research
official said today.
Terry B. Kinney, Jr.,
said bee specialist
William T. Wilson began
a four-month assign
ment at Weslaco, Tex.,
near the area in the Rio
Grande Valley where
the mites, Carapis
woodi, were first
discovered in July.
Inspectors for USDA’s
Animal and Plant
Service found the mites
in a bee colony near the
Wilson, lead scientist
at the agency’s U.S.
Honey Bee Research
Laboratory in Laramie,
Wyo., will determine
research strategies to
use against the mite.
At the same time,
Kinney said, in
cooperation with the
Laboratory at Belt
sville, Md., bee scientist
Alfred Dietz of the
University of Georgia
will seek to develop
treatments for queens
and packaged bees to
ensure they are free of
the parasite. •
In surveys after the
July discovery, USDA
inspectors found the
mites at five other
Texas locations and at
bee apiaries in
Dakota, New York,
Florida and Louisiana.
State agencies and
USDA’s animal and
plant inspection service
placed quarantines on
the movement of bees
from those sites
