Caption: Honey bee mite. Light micrograph of a honey bee mite (Acarapis woodi varroa). This mite is found worldwide except in Australia. It feeds on the bee's blood and it doesn't kill the bee immediately but passes on diseases and viruses that shorten its life. The infected bee colonies collapse and die. Without honeybees to pollinate wild flowers and fruit trees, crop fail. Magnification: x37 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
