VARROA MITE SCREEN BOARD
Dadant Wood Bound Varroa Screen. Mites fall through screen onto bottom board. When used with a sticky board, this makes a trap that will eliminate all mites that fall onto it. 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. Catch those mites to eliminate them and also be able to answer two important questions:
1.) Do I need to treat with chemicals?, or
2.) Did the chemical treatment work?
Make your varroa trap with either the Dadant Wood Bound Varroa Screen and Sticky Board, or the Phero-Tech Screen and Sticky Board.
Bottom board shown in white not included. *May not fit all bottom boards.
