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!
