It sounds along the same lines as the Remebee stuff being developed. It seems big on theory, and little on practicality at this point. They seem to be having some difficulties getting the RNA into the varroa mite.

It'd probably be easier to find a bacteria or virus that naturally kills the mite, but doesn't hurt the bee - and then innoculate the hive with that.
