Pollen Mite
Pollen Mites are strictly speaking not pests. They are considered harmless and can be found on the hive floor insert. Their scientific name is Melittiphis alvearlus.

Their shape is rather more rotund than Tropilaelaps.

It is unlikely that they could be responsible for spreading disease as they feed on pollen. They can sometimes be seen hitching a lift on bumblebees.

They may appear in honey if limited filtration is not undertaken..
