Not sure about these new words, thread, post, ect. First year bee keeper. Not doing things just right. Had to buy two new Queens during the summer. One took, the other didn't. Had some kids tie a rope to one hive and drag it off it's stand about 20 feet. Lost about 2/3 of the bees in one hive to varroa mites. Treating them know, but am still trying. Really do need a mentor locally. Going to try this as an aid. Thanks.
