    TOOLS FOR VARROA MANAGEMENT

     Télécharger le document original
    Every honey bee colony in the continental United States and
    Canada either has Varroa mites today or will have them within
    several months. Varroa mite infestation represents one of the
    greatest threats to honey bee health, honey production, and
    pollination services. When honey bee colonies are untreated
    or treated ineffectively colonies can fail and beekeepers can
    incur major economic losses, and, ultimately, agricultural food
    production may be impacted. In addition, colonies with Varroa
    are a source of mites that can spread to other colonies, even
    in other apiaries, through drifting, robbing, and absconding
    activity of bees.
    All beekeepers should remain vigilant to detect high Varroa
    mite levels and be prepared to take timely action in order to
    reduce mite loads. Effective mite control will reduce colony
    losses and avoid potential spread of infectious disease among
    colonies.
    This Guide will explain practical, effective methods that
    beekeepers can use to measure Varroa mite infestations in
    their hives and select appropriate control methods. The Honey
    Bee Health Coalition offers this Guide free of charge and asks
    that you please reference the Coalition if distributing.
