Deformed Wing Virus

DWV

Deformed wing virus (DWV) is a disease of honeybee colonies, which is associated with parasitic Varroa mites (Varroa destructor). Varroa mites are known to spread the virus or at least activate it in colonies. Bee pupae are susceptible to infection at the white-eyed stage. The virus multiplies slowly which permits the infected individual to survive to adulthood.
