A white monitoring tray allows the easy removal of debris and faciliates inspection of the droppings of the beehive. An excellent tool in your arsenal to diagnose colonies afflicted with varroa mites and other pests. This monitoring tray fits under the 8 Frame Varroa Screen. Just use it to remove the debris that builds up on the bottom board or make a quadrant to section off and count mite that have dropped onto the white surface of the tray. If your ultimate goal is efficiency, choose this one.
Dimension: 11 3/4" x 16 1/4" x 3/4
Hint: Because the screen blocks bees from hanging out on the bottom board, the varroa mites are unable to make their way back into the hive after falling through the screen. They are programmed to wait for a ride on an incoming bee, so they just end up dying on the tray.
