Sabrina’s project focuses on the biological control of the varroa mite, a devastating parasite affecting domestic honeybees. Varroa is recognized for its role in the major decline of the honeybee population around the world. Her work aims to develop more effective pest control strategies that would be safer for bee colonies and consumers, while also respecting the environment.
