Varroa Monitoring and Control

Beekeepers need to ensure their colonies are free of disease and one of the scourges of modern beekeeping is of course the Varroa mite!

The BeeBase website has a very useful calculator to help estimate mite numbers and determine whether treatment is necessary. It is recommended therefore, that all PBKA members use this tool and then if necessary, treat affected colonies appropriately.

It is also recommended that all PBKA members register with BeeBase and take advantage of any inspections from our local bee inspector who should be considered as a valuable friend in the fight against disease and promotion of healthy colonies.
