Caption: Varroa jacobsoni mite. Differential interference contrast micrograph of a Varroa jacobsoni honey bee mite. This arachnid is a relatively harmless parasite of Asian honey bees (Apis cerana). It used to be thought that it was the cause of varroatosis, a parasitic disease that plagues Western honey bees (Apis mellifera). But this is now known to be caused by Varroa destructor. Magnification: x12 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
