Disease dynamics of Honeybees with Varroa destructor as parasite and virus vector

13 Nov 2015 Kang Yun Blanco Krystal Davies Talia Wang Ying DeGrandi-Hoffman Gloria

We propose a honeybee-mite-virus model that incorporates (1) parasitic interactions between honeybees and the Varroa mites; (2) five virus transmission terms between honeybees and mites at different stages of Varroa mites: from honeybees to honeybees, from adult honeybees to phoretic mites, from honeybee brood to reproductive mites, from reproductive mites to honeybee brood, and from honeybees to phoretic mites; and (3) Allee effects in the honeybee population generated by its internal organization such as division of labor. We provide completed local and global analysis for the full system and its subsystems... (read more)
