Varroa in Dunedin

Recommended Posts

Did some monitoring on some of my hives over the last 2 days.

One site with two hives in Dunedin had 2 day natural mite fall counts of 8 and 14. It's been 4 weeks since Bayvarol strips came out of these hives so suggests to me there are mites coming in from elsewhere.

The other site on Pigeon Flat - 7 hives monitored, no mites found. This includes the hive that had the highest mite count pre-treatment in spring.


All up I would re-iterate that hives in town are going to be under significant invasion pressure this season.
