    Mite-A-Thon Week

    The Bee Informed Partnership and others are sponsoring a national effort to collect varroa mite infestation data for colonies across North America by conducting a MiteCheck Survey. The Mite-A-Thon runs September 9-16, but the MiteCheck Survey is open all year. Participants will check for mites using either powdered sugar roll or alcohol wash and enter the resuts on the MiteCheck website (no identifying information is published). For more information about collecting and reporting mite infestation data, see Let's get Loudoun County on the map!
