Description

Use this observation board to track the number of mites in your hive. Can be cut to size with scissors or a paper cutter, but please measure carefully first.

  • Peel cover paper from adhesive board
  • Place mesh screen over adhesive board
  • Slide unit through existing entrance on bottom board *If more than 100 mites are caught within 48 hours, a chemical treatment may be needed.
  • Contact your state apiarist for guidelines. Researchers have found that as many as 40% of live young Varroa mites simply fall to the bottom of the hive, then crawl back up looking for a honey bee to begin feeding on.

Place this under a screened bottom board for observation. Not UV-resistant so do not leave this in the sun.
