Here, we investigate genotypic interactions between the honey bee Apis mellifera, and its fungal brood parasites. We found a complex relationship that suggests genetic diversity generated through multiple mating may promote disease resistance in offspring colonies, and that the benefits of genetic variation in disease resistance are most evident under multiple parasite pressures.
