Re: New to this forum
The bees were most likely too tightly clustered for the OA to be effective. Wait for a day when the the sun is out and the temps are above 40°F, then hit them again with a shot. Mite count should be taken on day three, even though it is not uncommon to see mites falling after just an hour or two. A proper November treatment with a very low drop, followed by a zero drop after the Dec. treatment would be great, but 80 was too high to get a zero at the next treatment IMO.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
