here the quarterly news in Georgia.... it says this in the news letter, isn't this high for those who take mite counts

"Varroa mite treatments may be unnecessary if your colony
mite level is below the economic threshold of 60-190 mites in a 24-hour sticky sheet test".

Difficult to understand what it means.  In letter it was said after winter when spring is starting. This is difficult time to do anything. Hive is quite small and mites in brood cells.

**********

If you have too much mites, take brood away. It is difficult decision.

Second  point comes when yield is over and bees raise winterbees. Mites consentrates  into winterbee cells and it is time to give treatment.

I do not count mites. I handle hives every year and do not let them make me surprise. It have happened however every now and then.
