The Varroa destructor mite is arguably one of the most destructive pests that plague honey bees. Proper detection of Varroa mites is only half of the battle of beekeepers, there must be a type of treatment in order to slow the growth of the Varroa’s population. Whether using synthetic or organic chemicals or mechanical means, the Varroa mite must be controlled by the beekeeper, and this learning series will teach you many different methods to control this destructive parasite.

On the second Saturday of every month, the learning series will teach education credits on topics from the Great Plains Master Beekeeping program. The learning series will provide knowledge gain on curriculum not covered in basic workshops and will expand on specific subjects. Learning series courses are two hours long and feature hands-on activities, lecture, and Q&A.
