Hello,
newbee here, i have 2 hives I started this spring, both have mites one 168 for 36 hrs the other 38. I purchased 4 treatments from a local supplier who sells individual packets instead of purchasing a full container. I received 4 sealed packets. I was not aware there are two strips in each package and you have to peel them apart so I cut open the package and put the content of two packages 4 pads on one of my hives...a day later there are a ton of dead mites on my trays and only a handful of dead bees...but I'm really worried about the queen. Anyone else make this mistake and still have bees to talk about?
