The rnite formerly known as Varroa jacobsoni is one of the major problems in beekeeping worldwide. Recently, it was shown that this pest is not V. jacobsoni, which chiefly infests the nests of Apis cerana in the Malaysia-Indonesia region, and the widespread pest was recognized with the new name, V. destructor. Morphometric analysis was performed on collected Varroa specimens from various regions in Turkey and identified as V. destructor.
