After reading a post about a dead out, is it possible to do an alcohol wash to count mites on dead bees from a dead out?
How many mites on dead out bees are too many? >3%?
Do the mites die on the bee or do they leave and try to find another bee? Or depends on how they died?
Where exactly do mites hide and feed on the bee? I have looked and have yet to find a mite on a bee.
