    Re: Formic Acid for Mites

    There is something called HopGuard that can be used. The way it's going, I may end up not treating.

    Re: Formic Acid for Mites

    I hate to bother them. I just have 2 nucs. I never did a sugar shake or alcohol wash. I can check to see if they have drone brood. They are Russian in one Nuc and the other Nuc has Minnesota Hygenic....

    Re: Formic Acid for Mites

    I have a SBB, don't really see any mites. At least none that I can see with a magnifying glass. If I have any, they are very small.

    Re: Formic Acid for Mites

    I ordered Mite Away Quick Strips. I guess those are the wrong ones then? I have some Apivar but I was told not to use those for mites either.
    I am in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

    Re: Apivar

    Thank you. I have a sticky board. If there are any, they are darn small. Years ago it was easy to see them on the bees. I see none on the bees now. I used a magnifying glass on the board and thought...
