Beetle versus Bee

Käfer gegen Biene

The Small Hive Beetle - behind this harmless-sounding name lurks a parasite that is responsible for the biggest bee epidemic of all time. The catastrophe started a few years ago in the US, and now the beetle is at the gates of Europe. Bee keepers and scientists may have lost the fight already. They say that unless something happens very quickly, nothing will be able to stop a worldwide proliferation of the beetle. And then things will look bleak for the European honeybee. Two Austrian scientists, the zoologist Gerald Kastberger and the bee expert Ernst Hüttinger conducted a trip across three continents, on the tracks of the «small hive beetle».
