The small hive beetle is a widespread parasite of honey bee colonies. Originally from southern Africa, this beetle has followed honey bees to several continents and is a nuisance pest throughout much of its introduced range. Genomic and transcriptomic data can lead to basic insights into beetle biology, and to potential methods of control for this parasite.
