Unidentified mites on my bees (not varroa)

Pollen exists in flowers, and pollen mites like pollen. Whether birds or bees spread them it's the flowers that primarily contribute to their existence. However like many life forms, the mites may be opportunist feeders depending on availability of the primary food source. Will be interesting to see the results of the identification process.

good call Grant I also think Trisbee was very brave to come forward about this because it really Did look scary.

I dont know about anywhere else in NZ but I know for myself when we found varroa in our hives for the first time I felt sick and I felt angry and played the blame game of how it was able to get here who was responsible yadda yadda yadda.

And Big ups to all of you who got it sorted :)
