Good morning everyone:
A beautiful day here in sunny southern Alberta. I would just like to ask a quick question. In a video I watched on YouTube about the Varroa mite and bee Hygienic behavior, the beekeeper said that if you can see Varroa mites on the bees the colony is close to collapse. I'm hoping I interpreted this wrong because the big feral hive I'm feeding definitely has Varroa, I've seen them on worker bees returning to the entrance to the hive. This hive is at least 8 years old, should I be concerned?
Here is the Video:
