    Please give info on treatment method and what/if any counts were before testing.

    Sorry jrbbees,

    I had posted this to go with a second thread i was involved in. This is HopGuard Spring March 23 treatment on. 1st treatment was December 7th. Did not pull count other than it was "high" in this hive. i had a mass brood dump from what looks like early spread brood, lack of food and a cold snap. I did a treatment because it was going to be done within the next two weeks and I opened everyone up to feed, grease and pollen, the weather has been for crap and rain/snow is in forcast for next week so I did everything at once... I had also got unnearved by the high mite counts I was seeing in this hive earlier this week.

    The first time I used Apistan in about 1995 the mites were 1/8"-1/4" deep across the entrance.

    The 1st time I treated in December I had a knock down that made this look small time. I wish I would have gotten a picture that day. This hive has had problems since the word go.
