"Fall" Hopguard Treatment
This is for KY_Mike, Katharina, and others who have used hopguard. Generally, what, or rather, WHEN, to you consider a Fall treatment? Locally, beeks say to begin treating (with any treatment) August 15. I've read threads where people were "fall" treating in November (technically fall, but opening double deeps in Novemember?). It's August 22, and I haven't pulled supers yet. It's getting cooler, and daylight hours are shorter, but it would seem the bees could still bring in nectar for another month. Also, if you've pulled supers, can one feed fall syrup, if needed, while treating? What about treating while queen is still laying what will be winter nurse bees? Too many questions, I know, and YES, I DID a search, thank you.
I don't keep bees, I tend bees. Does this make me a beet?
