Have a look at
Nakagawa, Shinichi, and Holger Schielzeth. 2010. “Repeatability for Gaussian and Non-Gaussian Data: A Practical Guide for Biologists.” Biological Reviews of the Cambridge Philosophical Society 85 (4): 935–56. doi:10.1111/j.1469-185X.2010.00141.x.
and the related rptR package:
Stoffel, M., Nakagawa, S. & Schielzeth, H. (2017) rptR: Repeatability estimation and variance decomposition by generalized linear mixed-effects models.. Methods Ecol Evol. Accepted Author Manuscript. doi:10.1111/2041-210X.12797
There are various ways to get CIs for variances, the easiest is applying confint() to a glmer fit (in fact I think this gives CIs for the SDs). For getting confidence (credible) intervals from variance estimates though I think MCMC (e.g. MCMCglmm) works best.
For testing random effects, see:
