Outsmarting Varroa Mites
Varroa mites are likely the primary cause of colony collapse disorder and bee population decline. If their level gets too high, your hive can die within 2 months from the many different viruses that they transmit. The instructor will share her year-round plan for mite management. We’ll open up a live bee hive and demonstrate detection and preventative measures (including the sugar roll test and drone comb frames), so you will be prepared to do it in your own hive in the next couple months. We will cover organic treatment methods like drone comb frames, oxalic & formic acid treatment, and caging the queen. Everyone, from new beekeepers to those with years of experience, will find this class invaluable. Instructor: Jennifer Radtke has been keeping bees in her backyard in Oakland for 11 years. After her hives died in 2010/2011 from varroa mites, she has been tracking and managing mite levels and successfully overwintering hives multiple years.
