Re: First Mite Count and a Surprise
Hi there, I am just north of you. It really doesn't matter at this point if it is a moth or a beetle larva. What is important is to get into the hive to determine if there is a problem in there.
FYI, I started my hives this year and was not able to observe any varroa until August. I've been treating with oxalic acid vapor, and the mite counts have been falling.
