The 2020 North American Mite-A-Thon will run on May 2nd-17th, and August 15th-30th. This year, the Mite-A-Thon will have a spring and summer session in order to maximize data collection and distribution. The Mite-A-Thon is a tri-national effort to collect Varroa mite infestation data in honey bee colonies across North America, and all beekeepers can participate by testing their hives for mites, creating a rich distribution of sampling sites in Canada, the United States, and Mexico.
