varroa mites.?
« on: September 01, 2010, 01:45:27 PM »
I am going to do the sugar shake on my hive.  I have a screened bottom board on top of a stand hive.  It is the 'betterbee" complete kit I boaught.  The mites can't go back up with this set up correct?  I don't have to take the hive off the stand so the mites fall all the way to the ground correct?

Once they fall through the screen, they can not get back on a bee.
