We treated our one surviving hive with Oxalic acid Sunday and will repeat several times in the next weeks to try to ensure they go into spring with a low number of Varroa Mites. I peeked in again today to give them some pollen patties to tide them over until the weather and flowering plants allow for foraging.
Still keeping our fingers crossed they’ll stay viable. We also placed an order for a new package of bees for a second hive.
Perhaps you’d like to cross your fingers too?
