I checked every 4th hive in my apiary last night to get an idea of mite loads. They were at or below 1% in all tests. So, would you still treat? Should I check again in June to monitor?

PS Fall treatment was thymomite strips.

Hi Joe,
There are several different opinions on thresholds, but I think you're still in the safe zone. Keep an eye on them numbers will rise with brood raising.

You could always give them a PS dusting to knock some of the adults off.
