STUDY ON THE DISTRIBUTION OF BEE TRACHEA ACARAPIS WOODI TICKS IN BEE YARD OF KASHKADARYA REGION
Main Article Content
Beekeeping (apiculture) is one of the main branches of agriculture and plays an important role in increasing the productivity of bees by increasing the number of bees for honey production and pollination of agricultural crops. Along with the development of beekeeping in the world economy, various invasive and infectious diseases of bees are also widespread. The parasitic mites Acarapis woodi (called an acarapidosis by the name of the causative agent) parasitize in the first pair of bee’s chest tracheas. The life cycle of the tracheal tick Acarapis woodi completely passes on to an adult bee and causes a serious illness - called acaripidosis. Bees infested with Acarapis woodi canes die without being able to fly, and bee families are weakened and productivity is reduced. Compared to a family of healthy bees in one season, bee families infected with acaripidosis produce 50-70% less honey.The study of bioecology and the spread of Acarapis woodi ticks is one of the essential tasks of theoretical and practical importance.
