Varroa Mite Control Part 3: Second Tin of Apiguard

4. Bees busy on the newly made comb. This was a surprise (although it shouldn’t have been) the bees were building comb between the crown board and the top of the frame. This was because of the gap created by the eke.

After two weeks since the first tin of apiguard was placed in the hive, it is time to put in the second tin.

    I see you got honey this year. We haven’t taken any from our bees. in fact we are feeding them again, they haven’t done at all well with this wet weather

      I extracted only 6 jars 😦
      It has been a terrible year – sympathies all round.

    Bad year for honey and bees but I love the photo of the bees climbing over new comb. Great step by step on Apiguard!
