The bees had been taking the Apiguard treatment and we counted 13 Varroa on the board so its certainly working. Ill put another one on next week to complete the treatment, Martin is going to come and have a look and see if we need to treat for Nosema which can be a problem over the winter.
We gave them some more concentrated feed to encourage a late surge in egg production. Their numbers seem to have increased which is good news as theyll need a certain number to survive the winter. They are building their stores but we will probably have to feed them the delightfully named 'Bee Candy' over the winter to help them out.
We closed up and left them to settle.
