He said: "There is no rain at all here so we have to spray water periodically on flowers. This is the reason there were drops on the bee, but it was amazing how it was just delicately balanced on his back."

Mint ... A 2006 study found that a spearmint spray killed 97 percent of varroa mites collected from an infected honeybee colony.
