 Test for varroa without killing your bees.

  • Take 200 bees from the brood body (Make sure you don't take the queen)
  • Insert the CO2 nozzle and inject the gas for between 10 and 20 seconds. Shake the varroa tester for 10 seconds.
  • The bees and varroa mites are anesthetised and the mites fall from the bees.
  • Simply count the mites.  The bees can be returned to the hive.
  • Includes two 16 gram CO2 bottles (enough for up to 12 tests). 
  • Include full instructions.

NB. Use the CO2 dispenser gently in the beginning, since the bottle is under high pressure.
