Seems like an extreme break in the brood cycle for mite control. Hope you can salvage and find some of your woodenware.

Hey BlueBee...did you get some rain up your way from Isaac?  We got *very* little down here from it BUT last night and today we've been having heavy rains...flash flood watches/warnings through Wednesday.  I know the guys down in Louisiana don't want any, but this rain is sorely appreciated here.  Of course, before long we need some dry weather to gather the crops we have down here and for a few folks that still have cattle to get their last cutting of hay.

Next thing we know Schawee will be buying up old pontoon boats to put his hives on...put'em on the ground and anchor'em with 10' chains on each end...flooding hits and the hives float.  If they break free ain't average joe gonna mess with them!
