Quick. Keeps the bee sample alive. Research conducted in Europe indicates similar results in terms of accuracy to the alcohol method. Requires the use of the EasyCheck Varroa CO2 injector
Calculation of the estimate of the infestation
- Less than 6 varroes out of 300 bees: we are below the safety threshold
- Between 6 – 15 varroes: it is necessary to treat quickly
- More than 15 varroes: treat immediately
How many hives to sample? 1-5 hives → all 6-20 hives → at least 5 20 hives → at least 8
