They can onlythrive in a honey bee colony and, if unchecked, can spell the end of ahive.The solution is simple - a woven wire mesh flooring. As the mites fall offtheir bee hosts they will fall through the mesh. This will prevent themfrom crawling back up to the bees (as they would be able to with awooden floor). Up to 60% of mites could be removed from the hive withthis simple approach.Mesh also provides essential ventilation for the colony.Many beekeepers around the country are using this mesh to ridthemselves of the unwelcome varroa mite.Plain WeavePlain weave woven wire cloth is used for the majority of wire cloth woven by The Mesh Company. Each warp wire crosses alternately above and below every weft wire and vice versa. Warp and weft wires are normally of the same diameter.Plain weaves are used for the majority of commercial applications and for filtration where a high flow rate is required.
