      Hi,
      I'm french veterinarian workin on bee's health on the Reunion island in the Indian Ocean. May i use your wondeful picts of Varroa for communication to the bee keepers ?
      I'd like to thank you.
      Just one thing, the european honeybee is Apis mellifera.
      Best regards,
      Olivier

      : Pas de problème Olivier. Tu as raison pour A. mellifera. Je l'avais mis dans les tags mais ce serait mieux de faire l'inverse (mellifica dans les tags et mellifera dans la description...).
