The mature female Varroa mite is 1.6mm and reddish brown. She sucks the blood of both developing and adult bees, weakening and eventually killing all hives that are not treated with suitable miticide treatments.
Control of Varroa is a guide for New Zealand beekeepers on how to control Varroa in your hives.
The revised edition is based on the original version of the manual and includes seven years experience of managing Varroa in New Zealand. It also includes the results of research carried out in New Zealand and the rest of the world.
