Re: I seen varroa mites!!! HELP

My experience is when you see mites on bees you have a problem. I almost never see mites on bees but I try to keep my mite counts low. I agree that you should do a mite count before treatment, then read the directions before you treat with anything.
listen to camero7, I never see mites on bees but when I do, I test the mite count, every time I've seen mites, the counts are high. It's also ok to put between the brood chambers, especially during cold weather assuming the brood nest includes both chambers, so that the proper temp. can be maintained.
