This project is the first stage in identifying that signal. The aim was to find a procedure for differentiating the various internal tissues and organs of female varroa mites. This procedure will be a crucial tool for second stage studies aimed at pinpointing the precise time when mite reproduction is first triggered. That, in turn, will allow for a detailed search for the signal.
