Re: First year beek with one hive asking about mite treatmants
My 24 hour drop counts were great and I was bragging at the bee meeting. An oldtimer suggested that I check them one last time before going into winter using a sugar roll. Sure as rain in Western Oregon two of the 5 had powder sugar that moved off the white paper on its own. I hit them with some formic and am now waiting to see if I will be down two strong hives come spring. I wish I had results for you but only your exact story about a month ahead of you (but with your weather the same place in the cycle).
