A varroa mite (Varroa destructor) and a "lesser mite" (as is called in China), Tropilaelaps clarae, side by side. Tropilaelaps jumped host from A. dorsata to A. mellifera in Asia. Hopefully it will never make its way to North America because in southern China it is sometimes more serious than varroa.
