It’s Ontario Varroa Mite Awareness Week – Please Count Your Mites by Sunday!

The Ontario Animal Health Network (OAHN) is asking ALL beekeepers in Ontario to check varroa mite levels in their colonies AND report their results anonymously UNTIL SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 16th, using this survey.  

This is a very exciting project to be part of, as it will allow OAHN to map varroa mite loads across the province by county. 

Survey results will be published by the end of September. Keep in mind that these data are secure, and OAHN will NOT publish any name, beeyard addresses, or any other identifying information. To maintain the privacy and security of beeyard locations, OAHN will be mapping and reporting data on a county basis only.
