It’s almost July 1, & time to do a mite check on bees
I prefer Varroa Easy Check or the alcohol wash methods
If 3, plus mites per 100 bees found, best to treat
Remove all honey supers before treating
Check catalog treatments or call me for advice
Time to harvest honey and replace empty supers on hives for fall harvest
Insert Small Hive Beetle (SHB) traps & assure hives of 8 hrs sun for prevention
Reverse hive boxes if Queen and brood all in top hive box
Shotgun brood (scattered), replace queen & equalize hives as needed
Manage hives, check progress and enjoy your bees!!
Good luck all!
