Iddee came out and helped me check my hives last weekend . We found one frame of brood ( only one in 4 x 10 frame hives) that had something going on on the brood, Iddee was not sure about it, of course I was clueless. So I put a call into our state bee inspector , Don Hopkins who happens to live close by...... The state fair had backed him up, but he came past today. Boy what an education .... He quickly confirmed that it was Veroaa , causing the bees to exhibit some Hygenic behaviour , he pulled a few emerging bees out and did see deformed wings and we saw mites on the bees. He then did a sugar shake to confirm mite count, yep about 60 in his bundle of about 300 bees, far too many. I have a pic which I need to upload. Don then helped me put Mite Away on all 4 hives. NC is so lucky to have Don, and I learned a lot again. Thanks a huge bunch.
