Tools for Varroa Management

Honey Bee Health Coalition

The Honey Bee Health Coalition was formed in 2014 as a cross-sector effort to promote collaborative solutions to honey bee health challenges. The diverse Coalition brings together beekeepers, growers, researchers, government agencies, agribusinesses, conservation groups, manufacturers and brands, and other key partners dedicated to improve the health of honey bees and other pollinators.

The Coalition’s mission is to collaboratively implement solutions that will help to achieve a healthy population of honey bees while also supporting healthy populations of native and managed pollinators in the context of productive agricultural systems and thriving ecosystems.

A major tenet and founding principle of the Coalition is the recognition that the current decline in overall honey bee health is a multi-factorial problem, and all stakeholders have a role to play in managing bee health issues.

The Coalition is focusing on accelerating improvement of honey bee health in four key areas: forage and nutrition, hive management, crop pest management, and outreach, education and communications. As part of the hive management focus area, the Coalition has developed this “Tools for Varroa Management” Guide that beekeepers can use to help focus on more effectively controlling the Varroa mite in managed hives.
