    The inspector was over awhile ago, but really haven't looked at the sheet untill just now. The results for this year were 1 mite found from samples taken from 32 hives. (Takes a few bees from each into a quart jar, then either rolls them all at the same time for a check right then, then the bees sent to beltsville for a more in depth test)

    I don't normally monitor mite levels but it is interesting to know very once in a while. Still have never put anything in a hive besides syrup and pollen patties, haven't even used a screen bottom. (Have in the past on a couple but none currently)

    Fingers crossed that the rest of the year continues to be good!
