Will ants remove dead mites from a mite board under a SBB? I always see ants on the board and very few mites even after days or weeks. Do I need to be coating the boards with vegetable oil or something?
Thanks - Mark Jourdan

Can you place hive on a stand w/ legs and set the legs in cans of oil? Then the ants wont be a problem
I have never seen ants removing mites, but my "oil cans" have never run dry
