dc.description.abstract Honey bees ability to overwinter in northern environments is affected by not only the populations of bees, but also their interactions with disease and environment. In this paper 48 honey bee colonies were treated in a 3X4 factorial study design using repeated measure over time. Three treatment dates, early, mid and late autumn and three acaricides and a non treatment control were explored for their effect on the timing, duration and effectiveness of Varroa mite treatment, as well as the effects on the population structure and dynamics of the honey bees. Timing of treatment was less important than the type of acaricide used and there was effects to the make up of the populations as a result of the treatments. en_US
