    Default Mite Fall after fogging

    I have a good amount of mites in my hives as I have done a suger shake and sticky board test. What numbers should I see on the sticky board when I fog with the thymol and fgmo mixture?

    If you have monitoring results from sugar shake and sticky board test, and they are showing lots of mites, I would expect any treatment that is EFFECTIVE to cause a very large drop of mites.

    Question: I am thinking that it would make best sense to fog towards the end of the day, or early morning while the population of the hive is higher. I suppose if you have a ton of hives, you just fog as you go. But with me, I have a limited number of hives and I could plan to fog either end of day or early morning....

    Thoughts? I am going to get started today, probably later in the day...that's my plan; subject to change based on your thoughts...
