That is what I thought, but just wanted to ask because I've seen a bit of k-wing in my own hives this spring - and heard reports from others of it too. I think mostly in hives that were weakened or stressed from something else first (queenless FE) - and it pretty much clears up when the hive gets back to normal. I guess maybe it is there all along to some small extent, but becomes more apparent in a weakened population.
Being able to ask you commercial guys on here is a great resource. Thanks.
That is exactly what I am implying. I think k-wing can be caused by other things, but is usually associated with tracheal mites - at least that is the impression I am under.Excuse my ignorance but are you implying a correlation between high k wing and high tracheal. Thats a new one on me if you are.
