Varroa - Scabies Riddle

Scabies mites suck man-blood, Varroa mites suck bee-blood (haemolymph)

{Owing to a variation in blood} Scabies mites are selectively infective
{showing a variation in immunity}.

Tropical honey's healing power over scabies mite infection {shows honey
varies the blood and immunity}.

Can this {immunity} be fostered in bees which have no resistance to
Varroa mite. And do tropical bees have a greater resistance to the mite.

Does this {immunity} offer any leads to the wider understanding of

How and with what do which bees make the healing honey.

Any answers.
