Mites, let us know how the other three end up.
I see you changed your post after most had responded. It may be hard for you to believe, I have yet to see a mite in my bee yard. I have not the experience to tell you why, other than the reasons I have posted. Is it because I have followed the advise of certain experienced beekeepers? I cant say for sure. Is it because I live in the mountains at 3000 ft., not near agriculture or other beekeepers? I cant say. If you want to insist, I have mites, if it makes you happy...well....keep insisting I have mites.
P.S. if I misunderstood you, forgive me.
