What is the ratio/mix of cat food to Frontline?
I never answered this....the directions said 100 g. of cat food and add the amount of Fibronil that will cling to the end of a toothpick. 100 grams = about 3.5 oz. I have only seen a handful of wasps this year so I think that it worked, although it was too late to save my bees.
Speaking of bees. I treated for mites today...bees are a tough hobby unless you are blessed with them. I got stung...one hive is gone...and I have a headache from smoke and Apiguard inhalation. Two weeks ago the hive was happily bringing in pollen and being busy bees. I noticed on Sat. that I didn't see many bees. So today when I checked they are just gone...they left lots of honey and lots of pollen in the hive, but no bees. I gave the honey to my remaining hive and the pollen will go in the freezer for next spring. There were some bees in there but pretty sure they were robbing as the caps on the honey were starting to get chewed off.
No idea why no bees, no dead bees, just gone and this is the wrong time of year to swarm and swarms leave part of the hive behind. And usually when they abscond they don't leave their honey as they know that they will need it. Strange little creatures.
