God Save the Queen (and observe some Varroa mites)

Did one of our early checks, finding the queen, checking for early Varroa, etc. We found her, and we did find about 7 mites on our board. A little disturbing this early in the season. We’re thinking about what options we’re going to engage for control. We’re both not huge fans of strong chemicals, but they do seem to be more effective. More posts to come!

Enjoy the pictures.
