Hive Inspection and (Possible) Mite Treatment

Yikes! I think I've got varroa mites. If so, we may have to treat for them (oxalic acid). Also a general inspection and hoping for more honey for a Fall harvest. New members especially welcome! Wear long pants and socks to tuck your pants into. Nothing worse than a bee in your pants! Also: ladies, bees tend to fly into long hair and get stuck, so take measures if necessary. These are just precautions. You're not likely to make contact with the bees. John

    Hi John,

    Sorry I couldn't come to the hive inspection/mite treatment.

    Would you be able to post a brief recap of what you did and what you found when you did the inspection?

    That would be very helpful, I think.

    I hope it went well and you had some extra hands to help you.

    Best wishes,
