Everyone has that frequency that truly destroys the ability to think and do correctly, whether it be deathcore, yodelling or some generic Broadway musical.

Is there a pattern of energy, at one of the scales, electromagnetic, sound, or even air currents that bees are indifferent to but drives the mites nuts? Like those high frequency wall warts for mice and rodents but scaled and matched for Varroa.

In a laboratory it must be relatively easy to run the Varroa through the gamut of torture conditions. If the mites are annoyed or nobbled enough, the bees might find a way to fight back.
