Varroa Mesh

A common problem in modern beekeeping is the presence of the
dreaded Varroa mite

Varroa mites are an external parasitic mite that attacks honey bees
these attacks cause a disease known as Varroatosis. They can only
thrive in a honey bee colony and, if unchecked, can spell the end of a
hive

The solution is simple - a woven wire mesh flooring. As the mites fall off
their bee hosts they will fall through the mesh. This will prevent them
from crawling back up to the bees (as they would be able to with a
wooden floor). Up to 60% of mites could be removed from the hive with
this simple approach

Mesh also provides essential ventilation for the colony

Many beekeepers around the country are using this mesh to rid
themselves of the unwelcome varroa mite
