  • Patent number: 10022338
    Abstract: This disclosure describes compounds that affect the olfactory responses of the honey bee mite (Varroa destructor) and methods of use thereof. The compounds do not kill Varroa destructor, and are therefore unlikely to generate Varroa destructor resistance, compared to an acaricide. The compounds can work in conjunction with other mite control approaches, such as a bottom board excluder and sticky board control devices, and can enhance the performance of other forms of mite control while decreasing disadvantages associated therewith.
    Type: Grant

    Assignees: Simon Fraser University, The State of Israel, Ministry Of Agriculture & Rural Development, Agricultural Research Organization (ARO) (Volcani Center)
