Question on New Hives
« on: April 19, 2008, 03:22:49 PM »
I inspected my hives yestarday and seen some very small jumping insects in side the hive. Should I be concerned with them and what could they be? They looked like fleas to me or could they be mites?

Whatever they are they are not a threat to bees, unless they are small hive beetles.
