Distribution of Acarapis woodi (Rennie)


A. R. Brimblecombe and C. Roff state in Nature of May 6, p. 561, that “Mites determined as Acarapis woodi (Rennie) were found recently on one of the escorts with a queen bee (Apis mellifera L.) from California”. They also report that subsequent surveys indicated that this particular mite was found on bees from other States of the United States, and was widespread in Queensland.
