This glass jar is designed to help you do a “Powdered Sugar Shake”. A Powdered Sugar Shake is another method of counting Varroa mites that beekeepers can use, it’s more intrusive than a drop count with a kiwimana meshboard. But it gives you an instant indicative count of the mites in your hive.

A beekeeper uses the “Sugar Shake Jar” to collect 300 bees and then add icing sugar, this dislodges the varroa mites. The dislodged varroa mites are then counted.

To read more about how to use this jar, please refer to the step by step guide on “How to do a Powdered sugar shake”.
