2015 Survey Q & A – Inspections

Q-It’s clear to me that we need to do more inspections and better protect our hives over winter.

A – Thanks for sending a survey. You had commented that you think more inspections are needed and that better protection is needed over winter.I do agree – however we find that the number one issue is varroa mites and those who are more pro-active in mite control, according to our surveys, have fewer losses. Our winters are not the issue as much as is our control of varroa.
