Hive Day: Varroa Mite Counts

Varroa mites are tiny external parasites of honey bees. Although mites can feed and live on adult bees, they mainly feed and reproduce on larvae and pupae in the developing brood, causing malformation and weakening of the colony as well as transmitting numerous viruses. We will demonstrate the methods of testing and treating for mites.
