Sugared Bees

Sugared Bees a video by themightyadam on Flickr.

Part of bee husbandry is management of parasites. Rolling the bees in powdered sugar and then shaking them makes any clingy Varroa mites drop off to be counted.

Amber shot this quick video while I scooped up more bees in a tupperware.

I counted zero mites, so yay!
