heavy overwinter kill in MI
I have had a severe winter kill over 40%. how clean, do I have to have the dead outs, and what do I do with all of the old dark comb,just scrape it off down to the foundation. Bee died surrounded by honey, and I also put up wind blocks last year.
I seen a video on u tube where fat Bob used a fogger and some mineral oil to kill veoria mites,he says it will not hurt the bees but will kill the mites, so, I will try that next, I am trying to raise bees with no medication.
Any and all help is always welcome.
