For the Rapid detection of small hive beetle (SHB; Aethina tumida) and for the mass-survey against SHB invasion, SHB-specific ultra-rapid PCR system was developed. Three different pairs of Aethina tumida-specific primers were deduced from cytochrome oxidase subunit I (COI) gene in mitochondrial DNA of SHB. Using optimized SHB-specific ultra-rapid PCR, $2.1{\times}10^1$ molecules of COI gene belonged to SHB could be detected specifically and quantitatively within 18 minutes 40 seconds. For the purpose of the application in apiary field, a DNA extraction method from bee debris was separatedly developed. When $10^5$ SHB-specific COI molecules (1/1000 body of SHB larvae) are existed in 1g of bee debris, it could be verified inner 10 minutes as qualitative and quantitative manner. SHB-specific ultra-rapid PCR we proposed would be expected to apply widely, either in apiary field or laboratory, for the rapid detections and the control against SHB-invasion.
