Abstract Colony Collapse Disorder has multifactorial causes such as habitat degradation, invasive species, pesticides, and agricultural and beekeeping practices. In this study, we focused on the effect of Varroa destructor on the vitality of the bee colony. Timing of anti-varroa treatment can possibly affect the transition to winter bees. The use of the chemicals or the presence of mites during the development of the winter bee pupae possibly reduces the lifespan of the bees, causing the bees to die before spring has been reached
