Abstract
Intracellular endosymbiont, Wolbachia spp., have been previously reported in many different orders of insects, but not in the European honeybee sub species Apis mellifera carnica. We first report the presence of Wolbachia spp. in the honeybee sub spp. Apis mellifera carnica of the order Hymenoptera. Using standard polymerase chain reaction (PCR) targeting of the 16S ribosomal RNA gene, we screened for Wolbachia spp. in honeybee Queen and workers collected from different parts of Germany. Results of the study revealed 100% infection status of Wolbachia in Apis mellifera carnica collected from different parts of Germany, confirming that the Wolbachia spp. were invariably present in the honeybee Queen and the workers screened.
