Technical Abstract: For more than 20 years, heat has been used in many parts of eastern Eutrope (Karpov & Zabelin, 1978; Komissar, 1979; Komissar, 1985; Akimov et al., 1988) to remove many and perhaps most of the varroa (Varroa Jacobsoni) from adult honey bees (Apis Mellifera). Bees are removed from their colony in autumn when there is very little brood.
