Abstract:The Isle of Wight disease of adult bees is found throughout Great Britain and France, and is present in parts of Switzerland and in South Africa. The mite, Acarapis uoodi, causing the disease, has been found in Czechoslovakia. This species of mite has also been found in parts of Switzerland not in recognized association with a diseased condition of bees. Several countries have established embargoes to prevent the introduction of this disease and an effort is being made in Switzerland to eradicate it.
