    Re: how cold to wrap

    I put my cozies on today, but it was about 40 here. I would have waited if it was 20 here. If they have plenty of stores, I'd wait for the weather to break.

    Re: My Mite load too high?

    You may be OK. You treated in August, and there may be some time left for you. I'd hit them again two more times like you plan, and make sure they don't starve going forward. I think you are...

    Re: What is this equipment worth?

    I agree with your assessment, but whatever you do, don't use post numbers as an indicator of beekeeping knowledge. Some seem to just like to read what they write on the internet.
