Varroa Survey

checklist 41335 640 Can your members help a fourth year Veterinary Student at the University of Edinburgh currently conducting a research project on the current Varroa control methods utilised by beekeepers in Scotland? They are aiming to analyse the various control methods used and their respective efficacy. Using data collected from this survey, they will select certain case studies from each treatment category and compare mite drop in these hives over a specified time frame post-treatment. In addition, using apiary locations, they will plot hive density onto a map in order to detect correlations between the density of hives and the frequency of Varroa treatment applications.
