September 8-15th is the Pollinator Partnership’s second annual Mite-A-Thon and you are invited to participate!

The Mite-A-Thon is a Tri-national (Canada, United States, and Mexico) effort to raise awareness about honey bee colony Varroa infestations levels in North America.

Mite level data including apiary location, total number of honey bee colonies, number of colonies tested, local habitat, and the number of Varroa mites counted from each tested colony is to be uploaded to the following website:

The underlying goal of this initiative is to encourage beekeepers to simply monitor for Varroa Mites in their honey bee colonies.
