Varroa mite survey and treatment procedures in Washington State



Varroa mite survey and treatment procedures in Washington State



American Bee Journal 128(10): 682-685



After one Varroa mite had been found in each of 2 honeybee colonies that had been moved from N. Dakota to Washington State, 1096 colonies belonging to the beekeeper were placed in a quarantine yard and tested 6 times between early February and late April. Nine single specimens were found in 9 colonies in mid-February; otherwise all tests were negative. Costs of the survey were evaluated, as well as the efficacy of Apistan strips in diagnosis.
