Saw a dark spot on the landing board out though my window so I went out to check and that is what it was just a dark spot.
So I gave a tap on the hive just to see if I can hear any buzzing (been in the lower 30s for a month now) and the out side of the hive jumped with little mites I think.
I had no problem all season,,, these guys are little smaller than a pin head and they jump around like fleas.
Do not want to crack open the hive to check due to its only been in the 30s here and do not want to chill them.
How should I handle this at this time of year?
