    Hi everyone, I took advantage of this nice weather (70 deg.) today and fogged and checked my bees before the cold spell comes through. 1 hive that I requeened this fall and 1 nuc with new queen. Both seem to being doing good, maybe I will have 2 hives next spring. HOPEFULLY Dale

    Generally speaking there is no time limit relative to fogging.
    If you should spot any mite drop off's I would suggest to continue to fog.
    Those are usually phoretic mites which tend to overwinter and start the breeding in spring again .
    So , the more are suffocated now , the better a chance to reduce the amount of possible breeding in spring.
    Best of success

    Hi Russ.If you fogg twice at 5 day intervals and apply the cords you will have 2 healthy hives in spring.This is a great system but use the system in the way it has been designed and join those of us that have smiles from ear to ear and very happy and healthy bees.If you try to do other things you will be disappointed and like most people blame FGMO.This works but you must use it as it has been designed to work.
    Happy Beekeeping.
