As I explain to the multitudinous grandchildren & nieces, think "fleas on bees." Definitely do a mite check. There are both "natural" and chemical treatment options.

You should only be concerned if the hive is suffering from too many mites, all hives have mites it is only when the bees are not removing them, then there is a problem, a small percentage of DWV bees is no big deal, but if you see a lot, time to requeen to a more hygienic queen
