I missed the first day of cool weather but it looks like we have some settled cool days for a week so; I can but hope I suppose!
Anyway, I just put on some "Mite Away Quick Strips" on the two hives at the Botanical Gardens. I'll remove them in a week or so and then do another mite count just to see how effective the treatment was. Oh, and also to check on how they effected the Queens!
Some other good news; both hives have filled the supers I left on them after the harvest so in a week I'd better bring another couple of empty supers back!
