The bees in one of my hives seemed to be moving pretty slow, so I checked them for mites. I found 6 mites, but I was probably just under 300 bees, so I’m guessing my mite count is between 3 and 4 percent. I decided to put in some apiguard. My question is, in early spring what is an acceptable mite count? I’m just starting my second year with bees so I have nothing to gauge it against.
