As most beekeepers know, the Varroa mite continues to be the most serious threat to honeybee populations in the United States and most of the world. The Honey Bee Health Coalition has just released “Tools for Varroa Management – A Guide to Effective Varroa Sampling & Control”. Drafted under the direction of University of Delaware Professor Dewey M. Caron, this 24-page document draws on the expertise of a variety of industry leaders, and provides comprehensive information on diagnosis and treatment options for this ubiquitous pest.
