=59/24 (Hours) = 2.46 per hour
or 59/1 (Days) = 59.00 mites per day
Checking the Mite count after the Sugar Shake over the weekend, keen to see if its made any difference to the mites. I have heard the count isn't very accurate after Sugar Shaking, I suspect this high count is the bees still grooming themselves. Wow that's a lot of mites falling out of the hive. I am surprised that the sugar shaking is still having an effect five days later.
I will do another treatment this weekend.
