So sorry! I haven't been on in a while and I missed this. Last year, I treated in mid September with Apiguard. This year I treated Hive #1 starting today. I don't do it when it's still hot because you have to add the drop tray back in to the screened bottom board. Hive #2 still has a super on, and the bees are moving the honey down into the hive. I tried to take the super off today, but I'm getting over a cold and there are soooo many bees in the hive that I was fighting a losing battle. So I gave up. I'll give them another week and try again. I've never had this many bees in the hives in the fall before. It is CRAZY full. And they were not happy with me messing with them either.@Happy Chooks
When do you treat for mites? The two treatments I wanted to use are temperature sensitive and it is too hot here and will be for another month.The Mite Away Quick Strips says below 95 and Apiguard is below 105. Next week it is supposed to be 109...again. Maybe it isn't as hot where you live.
