I had a hive go queenless/ broodless. Had elevated mite counts so I decided to do a dribble before the new queen got to laying. That was 2 days ago. Today I went out and there was robbing activity in the hive and a giant pile of dead bees out front. The hive was probably on its way out, but I feel like I just put the final nail in their coffin with the dribble. I bet it killed half the bees in the hive. Discouraging.

Sorry to hear.

Did your dribble escape the hive and start the robbing? Do you know who's hive was doing the robbing? They could be next on the mite hit list.

Worth a double check on the formula.
