Braula adults are often found an queens but their damage to a colony of honey bees is limited. The amount of food taken by the larvae and adults is negligible. However, the appearance of comb honey can be damaged by the tunneling larvae. Honey production by strong colonies infested with bee lice appears to be little affected.
