Why monitor varroa infestation?

  • To detect a massive Varroa build-up and plan treatment options (in early spring or between honey flows, for example).
  • To optimize treatment strategy (when and how to treat)
  • To control the effectiveness of a performed treatment

Quick and easy to use:

Beekeepers simply collect 200 or 300 bees and shake them for 60 seconds in the EasyCheck shaker, with a solution of alcohol or winter windshield washer fluid.
