Viruses on Varroa mites
« on: January 27, 2017, 01:39:16 PM »
Can anyone give me a list of the viruses found on Varroa mites? I got the list at a seminar but lost it.
Cheers

I think there's some debate as to whether all those viruses are transmitted by the mite and/or replicate in the mite. For example, the evidence that CBPV is mite transmitted may not be watertight (it says this in the article). However, since the question from the OP was viruses found on the mite then it's a good reference.
