I am a small scale hobby beekeeper (8 hives). I live on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Until very recently we had no varroa mite here on the island, however that has changed due to hives from other parts introduced to pollinate blueberry fields. So 2 years ago I came across Michael Bush's great website and I started with foundationless. I didn't have mites in my hives but I want to be prepared. I have some questions that I will post later.
