Mites ahoy

Pulled the sticky board today and was not to happy.  Lots of mites, bordering on the threshold of having to do a major treatment. Also had several beetle larvae squirming around.  Will have to let the traps do there thing.  Also ordered some Beetle Blaster traps to put in.

Suspecting the other hive had mites also, I put on the OA smoker and gave them a dose.  Tomorrow morning I will do the same for hive #1.  So much for Warre saying   "just watch the entrance to see how things are going".  Guess he didn't have mites or beetles in his time which never come out to say hello.

I saved the sticky board to show the Meetup group next weekend.  Later
