I don't see a lot of mites anywhere, the dead hives have almost none on the bottom board. SSB trays not cleaned for months only have a few mites. The die off is associated with rain and cold. DWV goes on spring, summer and fall, this heavy dieoff comes in the middle of winter. I think it is a virus.
