Honey 1 Varroa Count

Quick Varroa Count to see if we need to treat.

Tray placed 31 Dec 2010 14:30 (0 mites)
Tray Checked 1 Jan 2011 14:30 (3 mites)

=3/24 (Hours) = 0.125 per hour

Did notice some moths got stuck on the board, I suspect these were trying to get into the hive and didn't fall through the mesh board.

Great stuff indeed, will keep an eye on things.
