Varroa Mite Model for Demonstrations


Varroa Mite Model for Demonstrations is an accurate representation of a mite.   This acrylic mite model is a great tool for doing educational presentations.   Several varroa mite size models are available with the largest being proportionate to the human body size  (mite on honeybee VS mite on human body).  The varroa mite model for education is fairly durable but can be damaged if not handled carefully.

When you put the proportionate mite model on a human body and consider the damage a mite does it is truly amazing that the bees are able to develop and carry out their work duties after the mite damage has been done when they are young.

Several Varroa Mite Model for Demonstrations sizes are available (all sizes are approx):

  • Small varroa mite model = 1.5″ x 2″
  • Medium varroa mite model = 3″ x 4″
  • Large varroa mite model = 6″ x 8″
  • Plastic color may vary from posted images
  • Models can be painted if desired using acrylic primer and paints
  • Some imperfections can occur in the models and this makes each mite unique !

Note – the small mite models could be a choking hazard for small children.   Please take appropriate precautions when doing demonstrations around children.

Additional honeybee educational materials can be found in our Educational Items Section including teaching frames, miniature bee hive model kits and many books.
