  3. The site number, geographic region, site name, coordinates, elevation, and identification numbers for individual specimens used in this study with Köppen-Geiger classification (Peel et al. 2007) [106] and previous identified pathogens at each site (Muli, et al. 2014) [12]. The apiary, colony and individual identification (ID) numbers were assigned based on our initial survey scheme (Muli, et al. 2014) [12]
