Re: Mysterious deaths of my two hives... do you know what happened??
In the Northeast you should be checking mite loads now... I checked my hives this past weekend and was seeing mites on the landing boards. I have pretty good eye sight and see mites often before the average person will... I vaporized OA on two of our hives and had a mite drop of 12 on one of the hives in the first 20 minutes after the treatment. Vaporized OA takes 20-24 days for a full effect. They are already brooding up so OA isn't going to have a 100% effectiveness. I will be treating again in a couple of weeks.
