Abstract: The small hive beetle (SHB), a facultative parasite of honey bees from South Africa, has been a source of consternation for apiculturists in the US for nearly a decade. This paper briefly discusses the importance of the SHB, its history and economic importance in the US. In 1998, the year SHB was first identified in the US, economic loss in Florida alone was estimated to be in excess of three million dollars. African honey bees are highly resistant while European honey bees are highly susceptible to SHB infestation. Differences between African and European honey bee in labor delegation, foraging tendencies, aggression levels and effectiveness of hygiene are discussed. Complex bee behaviors like social encapsulation and SHB oviposition are also analyzed. Finally, current control methods and biological research are discussed.
