In the beekeeping industry, counting varroa mites is a necessary step in assessing a hive's parasitic load. The goal of this project is to develop an application that provides automated counting that is fast and effective.
In order to protect against varroa infestation, beekeepers must be able to determine the extent of the infestation to carry out effective treatment adapted to the colony’s varroa load. The developed tool must help beekeepers to monitor the varroa population in their hives.
