Managing Varroa

Since its discovery in England in 1992 the parasitic mite, Varroa destructor, has spread to infest colonies of honey bees throughout the UK. Its management has now become a routine part of bee husbandry. The development of strains of mite resistant to treatments used against them poses new challenges to beekeepers. This leaflet describes the biology of the mite, how it can be recognised and monitored, the latest approaches beekeepers can use to control the infestation in their hives, and a look ahead to the future.

Speech by Meurig Raymond at Dairy Summit 11th July 2012

I must start by thanking you all for coming, thanking you for giving up a day, managing your business so you can get away or getting someone else to do the milking. But I know most of you had no choice but to come today – because if you didn’t get on that bus or catch that train…  in 5, 10 or 20 years’ time you might just look back and say:  I wonder if we could have made a difference if we’d stood up and said “enough is enough?”  This is the final straw.
