Just finished my second summer as a beek.
Past few weeks I've noticed a very small, gray colored, oval shaped insect on the seams of my top and inner covers.
They are small enough that I may have missed them all along, or thier numbers were too small, but I'm noticing them now. Colonies seem to be unaffected by them,...so far. Hives have been/are in beating sun.
I'm assuming they're insects (six legged) as opposed to eight legged, as they are oval and move more like an insect, almost like a flea.
What kinda cootie could it bee?
I'm out tonight, so I'll check in later tonight.
