How soon is too soon for opening the hive?
New bee keeper here. I have the feeling my hive is weakening so I'm trying to boost their strength before winter. I tried to do a sugar test on some Bees today in order find out my mite count. I had no luck retrieving enough Bees for the jar. I watched some videos on how other beekeepers do it.
My question is would tomorrow be too soon to try again? I don't want to stress my hive but I don't want to let too much time go by before I figure put what's weakening my hive.
Side note…I gave them some sugar syrup in a frame feeder today.
