    Default small cell mite loads

    In their recent study, the Univesity of GA determined that varroa mite loads in small cell colonies compared with conventional cell weren't significantly different.

    I might add that even the small cell supporters wouldn't claim that small cell eliminates mites entirely but that it maintains them at a more tolerable level.

    Since I first posted this thread I've decided to treat with Apiguard. The hives with the highest mite counts got treated with powdered sugar a week before the Apiguard. The hive with a lower mite count only got Apiguard, and the hive with a very low mite count got no treatment. It will be a little experiment. Will do mite counts in 3 weeks.

    Next year I may try Apilife Var....just for "var"iety.
