Participate in our mite count citizen science project by submitting your data! The published data will not identify individual participants.
Mite counts should be collected using the alcohol wash method. Watch the above video demonstration for instructions on using the alcohol wash method.
Enter your data including location, and the number of Varroa mites counted from each hive. Mite loads should be calculated and entered as # mites/100 bees for each individual colony you test.
It is best for your bees to check your mite levels every month.
