Mite-A-Thon is a tri-national effort to collect mite infestation data and to visualize Varroa infestations in honey bee colonies across North America. All beekeepers can participate, creating a rich distribution of sampling sites in Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Their Varroa monitoring data will be uploaded to www.mitecheck.com.
Members of Hardin County Beekeepers Association are encouraged to submit their data. It's easy and valuable information to fight the Varroa mite and diseases.
Last year's report included data from over 1,500 beekeepers managing over 5,000 colonies. Less than 15 beekeepers across the state participated. Hardin County can double that number easily. Let's make sure Hardin County is represented!
