if what i see doesn't make me say bad words, the mite count is ok.
just don't say bad words in front of your granddaughter because she'll tell everyone!
Kathy, you still bring out that inward laugh with me, you a funny gal.
Try the sticky board thing, like Kathy was speaking about, there are many variations. You can make one out of white clorplast plastic, anything. I do that. It is like the plastic signs that go up around in voting seasons. I spray pam on it, and then put them in each colony for three days. I then divide to get a daily mite count. That is a simple definition, do a search here, there are many topics about mite counting. Have that wonderful and great day, to love and live, with great health. Cindi
