The living environment of the honey bee is a suitable place for all kinds of pests and diseases to live. Also, the presence of honey, wax, larvae, pupae, and a large number of bees in a dark space and some other things, including desirable temperature and humidity inside the hive, has attracted all kinds of pests and diseases. Varroa mite is the main obstacle to the survival of bee colonies. If you do not control it, it can cause the collapse of bee colonies in a few years. Varroa mite control is essential to maintain bee colonies in most beekeeping areas around the world. Beekeepers routinely use chemical treatments to control this mite. Nowadays, excessive use of chemical pesticides and incorrect management has led to widespread resistance in Varroa mite populations and the residual of these pesticides in beehive products. However, beekeepers usually use more chemical pesticides to control this parasite. Today, researchers are trying to find safer ways to control Varroa mites. Honey bee Specialists and international researchers have introduced several plant compounds as suitable alternatives to chemical pesticides in controlling Varroa mites. Therefore, the most important plants used in honey bee colonies to control Varroa mite have been introduced in this review.
