Varroa Mites Thwarted by Vampire Bees??

An interesting travel article about Transylvania in the Financial Times noted that bees in the Carpathian Forest of Transylvania are not afflicted by the varroa mite  found in bees elsewhere in Romania and the rest of the world, including Hawaii (Financial Times, November 5-6 2011).


Coincidence, or are these bees special in a way not recognized by the reporter?
