What kind of mite treatment to use?
Hi, I have a hive that just survived its first winter, so this is it's second year.
I have been told the second spring is the hardest with mites so I want to get ahead. I cannot afford the smoker one. And I have too little time to do a mite count. My hive has showed no signs of mktes but I understand a completely healthy hive could still completely fall to mites.
What kind do you reccomend? I'm in northern WI, the very first flowers have bloomed so a small but of pollen is coming in. The hive is active and taking sugar water.
Thanks so much for your help!
