It’s not ideal but I won’t be able to check on my hives all of June onto most of July. It’s also height of honey season. There’s no worry of starvation and they forage next to open space near lake so I don’t need to set out water. I’m planning to do my final check and management next week. I’m going to split my large hive currently with 4 deep (2 brood and 2 deep honey) because it’s simply too large. My other hive just got a new queen a few weeks ago and is already in need of 2nd honey box. What do I need to make certain of before I leave?

Add a bunch of honey supers. Or how many that you would normally add at this time of year

Will it interfere with your mite management plan? If so, you could do a formic treatment before you go with supers on and just leave the pads in. J
