Developed by the University of Minnesota’s own Bee Squad, this test kit makes it easier for beekeepers to monitor varroa mite levels in their colonies. Everything you need to perform a powered sugar roll test is in one convenient tub!

Kit includes:

  • Plastic tub for collecting the bee sample and displaying mites for counting
  • Plastic scoop with a 100 ml mark to help you collect 300 bees (standard sample size)
  • Glass jar with a mesh screen for separating the bees from the mites
  • 1 lb of powdered sugar
  • Plastic bottle for water to dissolve the sugar in order to see the mites clearly
  • Brochure with instructions

Number of mites = % Varroa infestation

3 for 300 bees

2 for 200 bees

(adjust according to sample size)

Depending on location and the time of year, alert thresholds range from > 1% to 5%. Check with your local association to determine thresholds in your area.
