getting mite count during treatment with covered SBB
I'm treating for mites and have placed a board over my SBB. How can I get a count of dead mites that drop? I've looked at the board and don't see many dead mites but that is probably because the bees remove them. Should I make the board that covers the SBB sticky? To keep bees from getting stuck do I need to place a second screen on top of the board covering the SBB?
