Hive Check 22 August

Rachel, Paul, George and I attended today. The bees were very active and certainly numerous. They had taken most of the Apiguard and we were rewarded with a large number of dead mites on the varroa floor. Martin suggested that we only use one treatment as the it stops the queen from laying and its probably more important to get the numbers up at this point in the year. The queen was spotted and there was certainly plenty of brood and stores were building.
