Just ran across this on Youtube.    You can see just how fast the mites can run around.   Too bad there is no sound with it, but cool to watch how those buggers move.

Looks like that hive has a really bad infestation. Glad it's not mine!

Arrrrgh....I don't know how he can just stand there clinically manipulating the infested bees.  If I came up against that I think I'd be zooming in with a magnifying glass squishing mites with the tweezers.  Even if that approach wasn't gonna make a difference in the long run I'm pretty sure I'd feel better.

Good video though and thanks for posting that!
