Some years we have a hot summer, some years we donít. If you can predict the cycles of nature in advance, maybe you should go work in the futures markets.
Hey, at least Iím not in denial. I know there are varroa in the hives; even if I donít see too many.
The varroa sure aren't slowing them down this summer. I was out working in a field behind my bees when all of a sudden I was surrounded by a cloud of bees. You never like to see that happen.
Blaa blaa blaa.
Mites are different amount in different hives and in different years. What then. It makes no difference how you treat them. You just kill.
I do not count them. I just kill. I may look them after killing.
To count mites is not my favorite.
