Sugar shake kit to test your hive for the presence of varroa mites.

Our kit includes a jar with stainless steel mesh lid (3mm aperture), 100g of pure icing sugar, a measuring cup and spoon, and instructions on performing the test and what to do if you find something.

You will need some newspaper and a white bucket or container half filled with water, and of course your safety gear and smoker!

You can find the instructions here:
