I'm a old beek that's picked up on a old habit. I bought 5 nucs and March and 5 more in April and caught 1 swarm and done 1 cut out. I don't like sitting around
. I also joined my local club Suncoast Beekeepers and I'm really having fun. I'm not sure about mites but I have a butt load of SHB! I started adding oil traps to my screen bottom boards to catch them. Thanks!
