when i did a 2 day drop test 2 of my hives were loaded with mites. there were also some bees with deformed wings. so i relunctantly decided to treat those 2 hives. i used mite-away but only used 1 strip per hive insted of 2. not a full treatment but it had to put a dent in the mite population. i know it's common for the queen to quit laying when you treat. does the hive sometimes read that as the queen is not up to par? i'm asking because 1 of the treated hives has around 15 queen cells, 1/2 of them are capped. could that be the result treating? i did not see the queen which does not mean she is mot there & there was not any new brood present which is also common when you treat, so the normal clues do not apply for now. also-how long before the queen starts laying again?
