Heat-treatment of Varroa-infected honeybee colonies

Apiacta 20(4): 113-117
Heat-treatment of Varroa-infected honeybee colonies
In the USSR, heat treatment is commonly used, especially in small apiaries, to kill Varroa jacobsoni. Treatment is carried out in late autumn when ambient temperatures are 0-10 degrees C (treatment in early autumn is not recommended as it may encourage bees to resume brood rearing). Infested bees are shaken or blown off the combs into a cylindrical wire mesh container; this is placed in the treatment chamber and rotated on a horizontal axis.
