Bee Mites

email address

I've recently been in a conversation with someone on mites that live on bees. Since the previous link I had to an article that listed 170 kinds of mites that live on bees, (O. F. Grobov (1985): Additional data on the acarine fauna in some Hymenoptera; p. 90. [Ru. Date: 8.IV.1985]. – In: BALASHOV, Yu. S. (ed.). The 5th All-Union Acarological Workshop (Frunze, May 1985). Abstracts. Frunze (Ilim) ) I decided to try to compile my own list based on what I can find online. These mites are not necessarily good or bad for bees. But they are part of the ecology of the colony.

Click here for pictures of more than 150 kinds of bee mites.

Click here for a list of bee mites.

My current count is 751 mites that live on bees. If you discover more, feel free to email me. These are all found in bee colonies but are not all obligate parasites of honey bees. Many are found in other places or on other bees as well. Here is my current list.
