Hello from Florida.
« on: May 04, 2010, 09:03:50 PM »
Hello All
   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 :-D. 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!

welcome Tim, are your hives in the sun, it will help with SHB, and a good hygienic queen will help, if the bees don't chase them out they will destroy the hive,
