Checking for Varroa Using Icing Sugar

Wednesday, March 27, 2019 11:30 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Myriam came across an article on the Dave Cushman Website about a simple, non chemical, inexpensive and non destructive way to test for the degree of infestation of Varroa mites. She wants to share this article with you. View the article Here  

Ann Chilcott, Scottish Expert Beemaster and known to some members of Newbattle Beekeepers Association wrote an article for 'The Scottish Beekeeper' published in the October 2017 edition (page 386)where she compares a then new varroa testing tool and compared it with the 'Sugar Shake' method.
