Mildew Inside Hive
It's about 54 degrees during the day here in NC. I have 3 hives and in the process of checking them today I noticed 3 things:
1) The pollen paddies from Daddant in each of the hives had started to mildew. Have only been in the hives about a month
2) The inside of the top covers were mildewing as well. I believe moisture was collecting inside each hive.
3) A few hive beetles had started laying in the pollen paddies. Some larvae had hatched.
I tossed out the pollen paddies and replaced them with new paddies. How do I correct the moisture problem and what are your thoughts on the hive beetle larvae in the paddies?
