In this paper, using polymerase chain reaction assay based on specific amplification of the 16s rRNA Wolbachia gene fragments, we recorded 100% infection in the workers of the honeybee subspecies Apis mellifera carnica collected at the Honeybee Research unit, Bremen, Germany, confirming that they are abundant in the workers of the honeybees screened
