untilThe 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 https://bip2.beeinformed.org/mitecheck. Let's get Loudoun County on the map!
LEGOnauts posted a topic in Visitors QuestionsHello! We are a team of 6th graders doing a project about treating bees for Varroa Mites. Our theory is that Varroa Mites cannot tolerate low pH. We conducted an experiment that resulted an acidic bee smoker smoke that reduced the pH of smoke from a 7 to a 4. We think that this might be a possibility for treating Varroa. We’re collecting data with a survey and would appreciate it you would take some time to fill it out. To help our solution, we have created a survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DKJG8LR.
