BeeWeaver colonies will build strong populations, produce big honey crops and naturally minimize Varroa mite population growth.
BeeWeaver honeybees detect and eliminate infested pupae - killing subsequent generations of immature mites in the process.
BeeWeaver bees also groom each other and chew mites in the process, leaving mites damaged, susceptible to desiccation or dead.
BeeWeaver bees also mount a distinct immunological response to viral challenge, enabling them to resist infection by several deadly viruses that Varroa mites vector.
BeeWeaver bees increase the expression of some immune genes and reduce the expression of others in response to viral pathogens. The genes upregulated in BeeWeaver bees exposed to viruses are usually downregulated in other strains, and the immune genes downregulated in BeeWeaver bees infected by viruses are usually upregulated in other strains exposed to viruses.
