Unfortunately they are from one of my hives. I went into all three hives today and the first one was full of mites. The bees had built drone comb between the bottom and second deep that broke apart when I separated the boxes (actually when I pulled the frames on the second deep). The drone larva had mites. The amount of mites I saw was shocking There was also drone comb between the second deep and the medium, with mites. This is a very strong hive, but with the mite load I saw I don't know for how long. The hive next to it had the drone comb drawn between the two boxes also, but I only found one mite (I'm sure there are more). The 3rd hive (swarm) didn't have any that I could see, but I think they are too mean to allow mites in. :lol: I closed them up as quickly as I could. -----Warning: Graphic Images ------ The mites on the larva were obvious, also the ones in the wax, but I didn't see any on the workers. But when I came back in the house and looked at the pictures on the computer, there it was.
