  • Details

  • The Bee Squad has made it easier for beekeepers to monitor varroa mite levels in their honey bee colonies. Everything you need to perform a powdered sugar roll test is in one convenient tub!


    This kit includes:

    -a tub for collecting the bee sample and for displaying mites at the final mite count.

    -a scoop with a 100ml mark to measure 300 bees (standard sample size)

    -a jar with a mesh screen for separating the bees from the mites

    -1lb of powdered sugar for the test

    -a bottle for water to dissolve the sugar in order to see the mites clearly

    -brochure with instructions


    Proceeds from the sales of the Varroa Mite Testing Kit will be used to fund MiteCheck, a beekeeper citizen science project.

    Orders of 10 or more must be processed directly through the Bee Squad Office . They can be reached at 612-624-8989 or via e-mail at beesquad@umn.edu .
