Figure 3

Adjusted mean proportions (+/−SE) of naturally recapped worker brood cells, infested or uninfested with V. destructor mites, in local colonies of surviving and susceptible European honey bees, A. mellifera, in Norway, Sweden and France (Avignon and Sarthe) (n = 74 colonies). In all populations, the surviving colonies showed both significantly higher frequencies of recapping and a significant targeting of mite-infested cells compared to the local susceptible colonies (GLMM, see Table 2, Supplementary Information Table 4). Asterisks indicate significant differences between groups (p < 0.05). There were no significant differences between test populations (GLMM: χ2 = 5.43, p = 0.143, n = 74).
