We checked the bottom board and we discovered seven Varroa mites in Goldie, which is a very low count for this time of year but we must keep an eye on these little mites.
We also need to work out a way to control their numbers without using chemicals, not keen to use any chemicals if we can help it.
The other organisms we have photographed need identifying so we would appreciate any help with this.
What do you do to control Varroa?
She loves New Zealand native flora and fauna, her fav is the Kowhai...with Manuka honey close second ; )
Some of you may know that Margaret is a qualified Life Coach, she trained through the Coaching Academy in London and holds DipPC.Adv.
