First year BK with two hives, A has two deeps and med honey super still on and B is a 4x4x4 Nuc. Both seem to be doing really well this late in the season. Lots of bees out and about during these very mild NY December days.
Any - the question - do people typically treat in the spring? I treated with Apivar late this year (long story) and did see hundreds, if not thousands of dead mites at the entrance reducer.
Does the mild fall/winter change the answer to that question because bees will probably be rearing brood a lot sooner, if not already?
