This paper presents the main results of research obtained in the design of an algorithm to detect and track an object in a video recording. The algorithm was designed in MatLab software and the videos used, which  presence of the mite Varroa Destructor in the cells of Africanized Honey Bees, were provided by the Centro de Investigación Apícola Tropical (CINAT-UNA).  The main result is the creation of a program capable of detecting and recording the movement of the mite, this is something innovative and useful for studies of the behavior of this species in the cells of honey bees performing the CINAT.
