I was inspecting my hives real quick this morning and in my strongest hive I came across this little guy walking around the tops of the frames.

Is this possibly normal? If not, what is possibly going on? I hived this tree rescue on March 23rd with no salvaged comb. "Next door" are two swarms that I caught and they all appear to be healthy and good.

Any ideas?

Well, F*CK... let me take that back.

I apparently shouldn't trust my "glances with the naked eye".

I have a mite on this very bee... it's actually quite obvious once I saw it... but yet I have been handling this bee all morning and hadn't noticed.

I'm a terrible bee keeper. :(

Guess it's time to start some sort of controls... I'm trying to run treatment free... we shall see!
