The spread of disease between closely related species is often times exacerbated by a vector. In this study, the Varroa mite, a pest exclusive to honeybees, has been shown to amplify the natural levels of the Deformed Wing virus, resulting in a spillover effect. The virus was found in non-Apis species on Oahu, and island where the mite is established. However, the virus was not found in non-Apis species on Maui, and island where the mite has not been introduced.
